    Nevertheless, can I propose the Boris, as a measure of truthfulness, or rather the lack of it. Like all SI units it can be scaled: from a microBoris (a small lie) over a Boris (a plain lie) to a kiloBoris (a big lie) and even a megaBoris or a teraBoris.
    And i suppose a huge loan would be a Corbyn
    the interest payments would be in Abbots

    Will I be allowed to keep my metric tools? I have lots of imperial tools I could show them when they come round and dig up my metric stuff after they leave I suppose...

    I think tools running the country is the problem. But is an imperial tool worse than a metric tool?

    Boris and Farage are definitely tools in what ever currency you choose to measure them

    We should do the decent thing and be bilingual.

    Everybody knows what 3m of 4” x 2” is.

    How about using a Manometer to measure Camerons?

    A total Cameron being 29.92 on a bourdon guage, or in modern units maybe a Torr for a complete Cameron vacuum might be appropriate?

    The sort of tools sold by Aldi. They might seem like good value at first but turn out to be dangerous rubbish..

    I think horrible realisation may be dawning. In two weeks we have gone from "Those European johnnies will jolly well do what we tell them " to "Pleeeeeeease, Mrs Merkel, pleeeeeeeeeeeease renegotiate."

    The Johnson is often claimed to be six inches but is actually about three and a half.
