If there were blog stories where the use of the silly imperial system were pertinent to the post then I would like to see it mentioned. The article is about the Government in the UK and their relationship to the press. The majority of the readers of this blog are likely in the US. There are different relationships.

Complaints of title III violations may be filed with the Department of Justice. In certain situations, cases may be referred to a mediation program sponsored by the Department.
