Reader letter: UKIP get my vote if they dump the metric system

I could be persuaded to tolerate UKIP policies, like withdrawing from the EU, and might even turn a blind eye to Nigel Farage’s conspicuous consumption of real ale and cigarettes which, in my view, gives regretable support to the alcohol and tobacco industries, if UKIP made it a pre-condition of any coalition that we dump metric measurement in favour of the traditional Imperial system and return £SD to our pockets and tills.
