It’s a small-village-west -of-London colloquialism for being broke, for having no money.

It’s roots stem back to a rowdy game of Scrabble during my college years, it was a triple word score, and a verb described by a fellow player in a Clouseauesque accent as meaning 'to be penniless'. It's still used today, twenty five years later.
