Give em an inch and they’ll take 91.44cm

! This post hasn't been updated in over a year. A lot can change in a year including my opinion and the amount of naughty words I use. There's a good chance that there's something in what's written below that someone will find objectionable. That's fine, if I tried to please everybody all of the time then I'd be a Lib Dem (remember them?) and I'm certainly not one of those. The point is, I'm not the kind of person to try and alter history in case I said something in the past that someone can use against me in the future but just remember that the person I was then isn't the person I am now nor the person I'll be in a year's time.

Arden Forester points out the European Federation law coming into effect in 3 years time banning all references to non-metric measurements on goods manufactured or imported into the European Federation will not only cost billions to both the European Federation and the US but it will also breach US federal law which requires imperial measurements.

What most people fail to understand is the extent that these new laws will affect us in England.  Any expression of imperial measurements will be illegal.  That includes books, textbooks, newspapers, magazines, even written processes used internally in a company that will never be used by the public.

Talk about taking a liberty.  I can use metric and imperial measurements equally as well because I was taught both at school – mathematics was metric and practical maths was imperial.
