The catchphrase from Vic Reeves' Big Night Out greets the news that Janet Deevers, the Dalston market trader whose metric monomania led to a court case in which she was given a conditional discharge only two weeks ago, just will not let it lie: she's planning to appeal against her conviction. She could be in luck: the government recently announced it was giving reprieves to the metrically wedded. A victory for common sense, but it's one less example of Europhobia for the tabloids to whip up hatred and loathing with.
She Wouldn't Let It Lie!
