You wouldn't happen to be a British national now would you? 

I could be wrong, but I thought the reason why it is often
referred to as "UTC" instead of "GMT" was to make it less
"marketing" of the British geography?

I'm sure that also has something to do with the French "Le
Meridien" which is recognized in basically that country only.
