Should we revert to the old Imperial measure or stay metric

Poll in the Daily Express.
As far as I am concerned Imperial measure is gone thank goodness.
From an engineering point of view Metric was a godsend.
I used to work in both but preferred metric once I got used to it.
Yes I use miles, yards and inches even now. Inches because my handspan is 9 inches.
In any case reverting back would be a disaster, all those born after 1960, thatís 60 years ago have been brought up using metric.
The poll said so far 72% wished to revert back. Sorry but that would be dumb.
