The honest butcher

"Berkshire butcher Martin Fidler, who came to national attention in 2004 for defying Berkshire County Council's enforcement of metric measures by using imperial scales - pounds and ounces - has been invited to the Royal Wedding by William and Kate. Martin's Bladebone Butchery has served Kate's family and the village of Bucklebury for 30 years." From The Yardstick, the Journal of the British Weights and Measures Association.

Well done, Martin, William and Kate!

On the happy occasion of the birth of William and Kate's first child, you can bet no one will be publishing the baby's weight in kilograms.
