The EU has made the sensible decision to allow the pint measurement to be kept in the UK.
There have been constant rumours for some years that we would have to sell our beer by metric measurements, so instead of the usual "pint of mild please", we may have found oursleves saying "500ml of mild please". It just doesn't have the same ring to it does it?
I'm not against Europe at all. In fact I would prefer us to change from the pound to the euro, but doing away with the pint just wouldn't have been a good move. I am sure that your beer which currently costs £2.25 for a pint would still cost £2.25 with 68 less ml. That's the way these things go.
