Good news, according to The Times people will soon be able to use only an objectively inferior measures system instead of the current situation of being able to use said inferior measures system in parallel with the vastly superior one.

Fun fact, by virtue of the metric system being objectively inferior imperial measures are defined by their metric equivalents in law so in effect using imperial measurements is just an awkward way of using the metric system akin to cooking dinner for two in tonnes and microlitres.

Don't disagree with that at all. Ludicrous thing to come out with.

We are regressing at an alarming rate. My cynicism suspects this is to appease the US with regards to imports, or it’s just red meat nonsense to appease those over 50!

I'm fluent in metric and imperial and often weave between the two.  Avoirdupois (which I keep in my locker). Voila!
