Seriously? This side discussion started because of a suggestion that 
some people might not find it odd to call a time zone for France 
"Eastern European time". I don't have particularly high expectations of 
politicians' knowledge either, as a general rule, but I do think it is 
fair to say that any EU politicians and bureaucrats involved will be 
aware that France is not in the eastern portion of Europe by any 

But we are getting totally off topic here - no more from me on this aspect!
