It would be nice if they got their FACTS right. They also seem to have forgotten that Thatcher wouldn't fund the replacement of the atomic clock so it went to France, who have graciously (but could change the situation if they wanted to) allowed what is actually PMT (Paris Mean Time) to remain as GMT.
Of course if Mecca Mean Time (MMT) was introduced throughout the World it would make life easier in certain respects. For example intercontinental bingo would be much easier, but which Mecca would be used? One in London? Manchester? Colorado? :biggrin:
