The South Will Rise redux

More on the Metric Martyrs’ struggle (which I mentioned last week):

Brussels chiefs launched an investigation after a Euro-sceptic campaign group in the North-East received an abusive email from a European Commission address.

The Metric Martyrs Defence Fund, run by traders who opposed the use of metric weights and measures, was called “f****** Luddites” in the message.

It was sent from an email address using the same domain name used by workers at the Commission.

Neil Herron, who runs the Sunderland-based campaign, last night demanded an inquiry to find if it came from a member of staff.
