WINNING THE CULTURE WAR:

Victory for Britain's metric martyrs as Eurocrats give up the fight (BENEDICT BROGAN and PAUL SIMS, 11th September 2007, Daily Mail)

Brussels will today give up the fight to make Britain drop pints, pounds and miles.

The right of Britons to use imperial weights and measures will be enshrined in EU law under plans being announced by the European Commission.

Traditional measures will remain legal "until Kingdom come", the Commissioner responsible for the move told the Daily Mail last night.


No issue better captures the resistance of the Anglosphere to the Enlightenment than the defense of traditional and human measurements against rational, intellectual, bureaucratic replacements.
