I've been banging on recently about how the BBC use metric instead of imperial when they know damned well that just about no-one in this country (British people that is) really understands metric.
Well they've come up with the explanation that for example, when they use metric during sports commentaries that they do it because these sports programmes are shown all over the world and the rest of the world uses metric (sod us then?).
I can sort of accept that argument BUT we the British people pay the BBC license fee and it is after all the British Broadcasting Corporation.
But that is at least a half decent (but badly flawed) argument when it comes to sports coverage, but what about the weather forecasts (ie: 12cm of snow)?
Are our weather forecasts shown all over the world and if so WHY!?
