Today is a sad day for Americans , the anniversary of 9/11, but should be a day of rejoicing for traditionally minded Brits, (especially those of Anglo -Saxon descent.) Today the unelected Eurocrat commissioners decided that we should be allowed to retain our pounds and ounces, still order a pint and still talk about miles , yards and furlongs. Who knows , we may even succeed in bringing back rods, poles and perches! I dream of the day when this silly money is abolished, when we can talk about pounds shillings and pence , instead of this ridiculous "p". Lets look forward to saying tuppence instead of two pee, and even bring back the good old "tanner" Keep silence all those born after 1971.
