POUND THIS, YA' BLOODY EUROCRAT:

Victory for 'metric martyrs' as Britain wins EU battle to keep pints and miles (Daily Mail, 16th December 2008)

After years of wrangling with Brussels, Britain finally won its battle to save pints and miles today.

The campaign to force the UK to switch to metric was ended when MEPs agreed a motion - without a vote - confirming that imperial measures are safe.

It ratifies a decision by the European Commission last year that trying to persuade the UK to embrace litres and kilometres was a lost cause.


'tis well Mrs. T lived to see this glorious day.
