How do you say 2010?

How are you saying the new year 2010?
There seems to be some debate about this. Some are saying ‘two thousand and ten’ whilst others are saying ‘twenty ten’.
‘Twenty ten’ is similar to the last century when we said dates such as 1990 as ‘nineteen ninety’ but few people used this way during the first decade of the new century eg 2008 was not often said as ‘twenty eight’.
Of course the children around here in the south will just say’ twenyten’ because as far as they are concerned there is only one t in twenty (tweny)!

Let us know what you think.
