Strange New Expression
Posted: 2018-12-20, 19:43
In a free newspaper in London, '' The Metro '', 19 December 2018 , page 9, the expression is used '' daft o clock ''. It seems to mean some unholy hour when most sensible revellers have gone home. Has anyone else met this expression? Will it catch on?

I'm guessing you mean this article
Metro wrote:A social media post from a holidaymaker who stayed at the hotel at the same time, said Mr Brown was not ill and was in a bar until ‘daft o clock’.
No, I haven't seen "daft o'clock" in particular before, but its meaning is clear. "X o'clock" is a pretty common way of jokingly talking about the time for something.
