From Mr Nicholas Organ

Sir: While also delighted that metrication renders fog less dense (letter, 18 January), I fear it may also make one fatter. The lifts at my office happily accept 20 people when the loading limit is expressed in pounds, but only 18 when it is given in kilograms. Slimmers might well be advised to stick to imperial units.

Yours faithfully,

Nicholas Organ
