How jolly decent of the EU

What wonderful news. The Glorious Peoples' Socialist Republic of Europe has decided that we, the British (although I am increasingly thinking of myself as English only), are allowed, ALLOWED for goodness sake, to continue to use pounds and ounces and other Imperial measures.

Actually, I do not really care whether we use the metric or Imperial system, as I have a degree in Chemistry and have worked most of my life as a research scientist and then an engineer. However, it should be MY choice of what system I use, not some jumped up jobsworth in Brussels or Whitehall!!
