Metrixit

Not much good has come so far from the Brexit vote back in June? Politics and the law have become entangled. My favoured holiday currency of the dollar has taken a pounding (every pun intended). The markets are still suffering uncertainty.

But I have been thinking. If we are leaving Europe – can we leave them with their funny little French measurements? To be honest Metric has not really caught on in my Industry. We seem to have acquired a special dispensation of refusing to move away from acres and square feet.

So, perhaps some good has come of the divorce decision?

Metrixit will surely find its place on the Oxford English in the next few years. It will be illegal to quote square metres or hectares?

I would like to tell you I have started the revolution – but in fairness I have never once adopted Metric. Hopefully, I don’t have to now.

Good news at last?
