Metric System was Invented here in Britain!

That's Right. The Metric system was invented in the UK by John Wilkins in 1668.

A hundred and twenty (120) years before the French adopted the system.

He detailed a system which would have units based on internationally agreed universal measurements, and based on decimal numbers (10, 100...etc).

This means that, realistically the anti-metric campaaigners have no grounds whatsoever to resist the metric system... They say the metric system is "foreign" .. but in fact, the Roman Imperial System is what's foreign.

It's a shame we didn't adopt the metric system back then!

Here's a link showing the article on the BBC.

Just a little note..

The UK has one of the SLOWEST national speed limit in Europe!

UK- 112 km/h (70 mph)
Most of Europe.. 120 km/h or 130 km/h

If we switched over to km/h, then we'd get the 120 km/h speed limits too!
The motorways were designed to metric standards, and for these speeds... so why not?

Even more crime from "The Vandals"


A perfectly useful AND LEGAL sign that gave heights in both metres and feet, at Grove Green Road, Leytonstone was defaced by the vandals.
4.2 metres is much easier to understand for the than 13ft 9 ins... now, thanks to the idiots, who defaced the sign.. the more intelligent of us are going to be left with an absolutely useless sign.

The Vandals strike!

By "The Vandals" i'm referring to the anti-metric campaigners, whether they are the "ARM" (active resistance to mertrication) or the "BWMA"

They deface our signs and try to force the intelligent Britons into an outdated and simply awkward metric system.

I've been out with my camera and here's some of the CRIMINAL DAMAGE that they have done.


Sign was on PRIVATE LAND, therefore within the Law, it is allowed state 200 metres, and rightfully it did... but the Vandals... the Antichrist of progress, plated over the "metres" with inferior and inaccurate units (yards).. this should be punished by Islington Council! someone should remove the plates and expose the true units!

Welcome.

This blog is to raise awareness that in Britain, we need to more widely adopt the Metric System of Measurements.

The UK has been metric since the 60's, yet it is still illegal to post metric signs on the roads.. why?

What can we do to solve the metric crisis in our nation?

We need to stand up to the Government and put down the retards who resist metrication!
