Allow any units of measurement

Comment 20th August 2010

People in a free country should be entitled to use any scale of measurement that they wish – metric, imperial, babylonian whatever – in their own lives.  Government can choose which system(s) it wishes to use for its own transactions, signs etc.  Clearly this would influence people but not force them.

People can select the business that uses the system they prefer.

Why does this matter?

There are advantages to every system and people who pretend that metric is better in every way to imperial are wrong – please give me exactly a third of a kilo of rice please.

Each system has advantages over the others and as long as people know what they are seeing that should be enough to make it legal.


I should be allowed to see oranges by the number of pips if I want – seems stupid to me but ….
