Sigh...such a golden age. Britain booming, 240 pence to the pound, yards, feet, inches, fractions, pounds, ounces, gallons, pints, fluid ounces etc etc

None of this EU Monopoly money and metric nonsense

Who is stopping us from leaving Foxy? Have the news got it wrong and itís the EU who has been coming to London asking for extensions? The uk could have left in March if it had really really really really wanted to - itís got nothing to do with the EU that parliament has decided that it doesnít want to leave without a deal.

Itís such a simple concept, yet Iíve come across well educated people who donít get it: The EU has no say over whether, as current EU members, we stay or leave. We can leave without a deal whenever we want, and if The UK changes its mind it can choose to stay unilaterally. Whatís so difficult to understand about that? Is it the word Ďunilaterallyí? Maybe people donít understand what the unilateral concept means in this context.

(Please donít say Ďitís the backstopí, because the backstop has nothing to do with the uk ability to unilaterally leave without a deal, or revoke and stay)

I swing both ways, can't beat a good old fashioned foot and inch, and have even been known to go the extra mile and exchange fluid ounces. But when I'm feeling really adventurous I like to dabble in grams and candelas.
Does that mean I'm bimetric, or should that be biimperial, or perhaps it's bimetricimperial, although a bit of a mouthful that last one, so to speak...

When I studied Physics we learnt it all in metric (SI units) even though it was 1987.

One day I picked up a book in the university library describing physics in Imperial units - just WOW - and I thought what I studied was complicated.

Sky's news is mileskilometers better than the BBC's, far more factual than the Beeb's perceived 'balance'. Will be interesting to see whether FI changes how he reports and tweets...

Aghh please don't go down the imperial route - "we fought two world wars for the right to use arbitrary units that don't use base 10 nonsense". Brave new world of the early 70s when the UK still believed it was at the cutting edge of technology (which to be fair there are numerous examples of where we were - but that is another subject). School kids like myself were drilled in metric, Kellogg had a campaign at that time on their cereal packets - something like 1 metre equals feet 3.3, it's bigger than a yard you see. Yet 45 years later market stalls in leave dominant areas still feel that they have a right to be metric martyrs...

Canada get it. Ireland get it. We can get it. Or align to America where it will take another millennium.

Have switched off BBC news and moved to Channel 4. Newsnight fine though.

So if there were a General Election

Main Choices could be. In no particular order.

1, Boris Johnson

2. Nigel Farage

3. Jeremy Corbyn

4. Vince Cable

Or forget about an Election and Let the EU continue to run the country.

and Corbyn ? What about Corbyn.
Ģ Blair has 10 homes ? The ones we know about.
He makes a fortune by speaking at lucrative events.
Corbyn is after a Slice of this very Lucrative Pie.

It's early days but Farage has definitely got off the mark quick. A win for his party could kill a second referendum dead.
