Time and tide, old bean

The Times wonders how we should name the new decade.

Of course, some of us consider that 2010 properly belongs to the decade that began in 2001, while the new decade will not begin unti next year (2011). But widespread innumeracy appears to have gripped the nation.

I blame that Tony Blair and his ridiculous Dome celebration the last time round.
