Ballsbridge Mean Time

Financial Times reports on the sniping within the UK government about how the pre- and post-election Trump relationship was managed  --

British officials are also keen to play down the idea that Mr Trump had “snubbed” prime minister Theresa May by not calling her earlier, or by speaking to the leaders of Egypt, Ireland and other countries before her. They say the president-elect had intended to speak to her sooner, but confusion about the time difference with London meant the scheduled slot for the conversation was slated for after midnight UK time.

Dublin is in the same time zone as London.
