Vote for £sd

I could be persuaded to tolerate Ukip’s nuttier 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 gives regrettable 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 pounds, shillings and pence to our pockets and tills.

Adopting these policies would greatly increase Ukip’s support amongst pensioners like myself.
