    No matter what, the French will do it the opposite way.

    However the same debate ensues when we write it down, some use 12 hour clock notation and other 24 hour clock notation

    That's true but there can be a universal language for engineers as there is for pilots and air traffic control.

    Not sure on this but I think when something new is discovered/invented as in the computer industry, that the language of that is universal.
    I couldn't think of anything witty to say so I left this blank.

    I can deal with that. What I can't deal with is when Oxford declares their time to be 15 minutes after London.

    Oxford is around 1degree 15 minutes west of the 0 meridian of longitude which is at Greenwich (i.e. Greenwich Mean Time) and for each 1degree west of the meridian the time is + 15 minutes in navigation terms if you are using a sextant, but since the U.K. uses G.M.T. for the whole of the country the time in Oxford is actually the same as London.
