Fully adopt the Metric System

Comment 1st July 2010

Remove the mess of dual Metric and Imperial systems and make the UK competitive by fully adopting the Metric system.

Why does this matter?

This will help make the UK a competitive and strong economy.  All but Burma, Liberia, and the United States have adopted Metric and the UKs non-coherent approach will only reduce the competitiveness in Europe and emerging countries (such as the BRIC and 'next eleven' economies, all of which have fully adopted Metric.  Even in the US, the vast majority of scientific organisations use Metric, showing it's importance in the emerging global knowledge economy.
