Newton (N) is a weight
Metres (M) is a distance.
WE ( wink ) use
WE ( wink ) know how much a pound is, and how long a foot is.
We ( wink ) also know how long a metre is, but WTF is a Newton??

This clearly shows the French have more common sense than the British laughing
And why is a pound in Holland the equivalent of half a kilo and a pound in GB a bloody banknote?
And are all feet of all the people in GB the same length? How can you else have a "standard"?
And I'm not discussing driving on the left lane, which is obviously the wrong lane.
You should've let the French occupy GB laughing laughing
