Is milk really an iconic product? Is a “pint of milk” what represents Britain these days?
I mean, just when you think the whole world gone mad watching a whale is bad along comes a story about how we measure liquids. And how people will get all confused, and end up buying too much milk, drink it and die as there bodies simply can’t take those extra few milimeters. Or perhaps they’ll buy too much, and then have it in the fridge for longer, and it’ll sour and they’ll still drink it and die of milk-poisoning?
Or even worse, they won’t buy enough, and will die of milk deficiency.
It could happen, right?
If the legislation goes ahead, this will cause confusion amongst consumers, because as long as milk is sold in millilitres or litres, there will be no specific measurements required by law
So, people of Britain, aren’t you glad that your retailers think you lot are as bright as a shite?
