British Prime Minister Boris Johnson wants to use his post-Brexit independence to give new meaning to imperial units of measure, such as the ounce. Several British media outlets reported on Sunday that Johnson wants to begin a public consultation process on how to reuse units such as pounds, ounces or yards in the near future, just in time for the Queen’s Jubilee next weekend.

Since 2000, Great Britain, a former EU member, has been subject to compulsory information in grams and kilograms on retail. However, British traders may enter pounds and ounces. According to new plans initially announced by the “Sunday Mirror” retailers should be free to choose what they refer to in the future. A few months ago, the Conservative government announced that it would reintroduce the “Crown Stamp” in pint form on beer glasses and champagne bottles as the correct size.

Labor, the main opposition party, accused the government of making a “pathetic attempt” to pursue a policy of nostalgia. Conversely, it is better to focus on more stressful things.

Viewers see Johnson’s new venture as an attempt to appease critics within their own ranks and to prevent them from discrediting the “Partigate” investigation report. Downing Street was charged last week with leadership failure and serious misconduct. Over the weekend, two other Conservative MPs revealed in a letter that they had voted no confidence in Johnson. If the committee receives at least 54 of these letters, a no-confidence vote will take place. The BBC and PA News Agency reported that about 20 letters had been sent so far. However, it may have gained more without coming to common sense.
