Could really confuse some TV viewers.
will it really be fewer doing it or just the same number doing it differently?
AFAIK is the proposal to stop doing it altogether throughiut the EU.


i.e. a member state will choose a time zone and stick to it permanently.
Ah - missed that - had heard about the republic possibly being in a different time-zone from NI and thought they were considering moving to CET.

Of course they are already in a different time zone (IST) which is technically the same as CET.

Looks like Sundays date to impliment this change has slipped by. One of those things that the EU has overstretched its power on? Maybe it wiĺl just be swept unter den Teppich and never mentioned again.

Getting an extra hour in 2022 is like getting a bonus track on a Yoko Ono album.

Prior to 1880 local mean time was the order of the day. That meant that local time was set by the position of the sun. If you travelled from London to Bristol you had to change your pocket watch back 20 minutes to match the local time there.

On another time related topic. Do any of you oldies remember between 1968 and 1971, Britain tested keeping BST all year round? That is the the clocks weren't turned back in the autumn. I have vague recollections of leaving school in the dark.

Yes. I do remember that. Radioactive glow in the dark Ready Brek was essential but you would have arrived in the dark rather than left.

Here's another one for the teenagers!

Yep, remember it well... actually, not so well, these days. Merv's right, we started school in the dark. I preferred that arrangement. Should have kept it.

Changing the clocks is woke nonsense. Children should just get on with it if they get knocked down.
I have my own tv channel, what have you got?
