Yet again I am struck by how unfavourably the way the present proposals
are going compares to the 1884 Meridian Conference. That produced 200
pages of well-argued proceedings, and the participants knew that it was
for governments to decide any changes to legal practice after considering
the recommendations of the conference, not for one body with its own
agenda unilaterally to decide to change time signals and let governments
pick up the pieces.
