Return to Imperial Measurements

Am I alone in welcoming the Government’s proposed return to imperial measurements? For me, what is important is that the change is PERMISSIVE. No-one is being forced to change to feet and inches. It is about choice. It is also about heritage. No-one is ever forced to abandon regional languages or dialects. So why should weights and measures be treated differently? Remember also that imperial are the units within which American tech continues to work. And they ain’t gonna change. And they have more influence over our lives than any two-bit politician or bureaucrat.
