bloody government with their stupid ideas that using pre 1960's measuring systems will somehow make the country 'better'. All this pandering to old people needs to stop.

I dunno, though. Could be fun having to guess the size of every little thing you buy. Amazon Stage Two!

Coming from an old fart that grew up with pounds and ounces etc. it does seem a bit backwards if they try to re-standardize the old empirical system in the UK now. Will we then go back to pounds, shillings and pence too?

It seems like a lot of wasted time and tax-payers money to do this now. Why not just bring back slavery et al and really drag the country back to the 17th century.

Groat for the kid guv'nor?

They used to change the measures on the size of the new King or Queen his or her thumb size way back did they not

Edit:i'm already having troubles with learning about angstroms since they started reporting on that.

My old money box has a few of these old coins from back in the 1970's and earlier through to the 1700's, so if we do go back I will be well flush. Maybe buy a tank of petrol with my new found wealth.

In New-Imperial, a tank is two pints, and petrol is so cheap that you could buy a full tank of petrol for only 650 New-Imperial pounds.

The moronic government are debating whether we should go back to imperial measurements, because miserable old farts want pints of milk.
"We've left Europe, why are we still using their silly Metric numbers?"

So they're looking for another way to disguise / hide the inflation then. Great.

Just after a bunch of stimmy cheques no doubt, bunch of crazies.

Just saying, I'd like less government, not more.
