When Do The ‘Tens’ Start ?

This week everyone has been talking about the start of the 10′s.

Technically of course just as the millenium really began in 2001 and not 2000 the 10′s start in 11 and not 10 (since there is no year zero).

Or do we just count the first decade of the AD’s as 1-9 ?

Why is it we count up from 1 but down to 0 ?

So when does the decade really start ?

And just to add a political element, how is this <insert political figure here>’s fault ?
