Blithering Bunny reports on:
The metrification bullies turn violent.
..a trading standards official of Torbay council in Devon walked into Dennis Webb's fruit shop. When he saw that, despite a previous warning, Mr Webb was still using scales that measured only in pounds and ounces, Mr James produced a hammer and a metal punch with which, according to Mr Webb, he struck the scales so hard as to render them unusable.
Might have guessed it would those nutter down ther - we have mentioned them before.
And on Metrication Madness let me present you the regulations on Honey:
Honey may only be packed in certain metric quantities. These are as follows:
57g, 113g, 227g, 340g, 454g, 680g, or a multiple of 454g.
The imperial equivalent may also be shown (i.e. 2oz, 4oz, 8oz, 12oz, 1lb, 1 1/2lb, and multiples of 1lb).
So you can't sell a pound of honey or a kilogram of honey - complete madness...
