I was thinking about a Christmas amnesty in which we all have to be nice to each other for a set period of time. There are, IMO, two ways of doing this. One is to cover the whole period when it will be Christmas in the US. So, from 12am ET on 25th December (0700 GMT) to 12AM Pacific Coast time (or whatever is it called) on 26th December, we have to be nice to each other. The other way would be done that we have to be nice to each other for the period when it is Christmas anywhere in the world, thus extending the amnesty a little. That would mean midday today GMT (it is 0812 GMT at time of writing) or 7AM today ET. It would then extend through to 1159 GMT on 26/12 or 0659 ET. Please correct me if my maths is wrong, BTW. What do you all think? What's more, I suggest that we all extend a personalised Christmas greeting to our political forumistas. Here's hoping Santa brings us another Superbowl win, not that I'm greedy or anything.
