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.
