BBC and ITV go metric
! 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.
Over the last few days the news on the BBC and ITV have, understandably, talked about virtually nothing but the snow.
There are plenty of other things going on in the world they could be talking about but the snow is a major event so fine. But with the snow has come an apparent metrication of the BBC and ITV. When they tell us how much snow has fallen it’s 10cm or 15cm. They aren’t even giving it in inches as well for the majority of the population who don’t do metric.
Surely excluding most of the population by using only metric is a breach of the BBC charter.
