“It’s being called Greenwich Mean Time plus two: a new time zone for Britain with an extra hour of daylight in the evening. The downside? An additional hour of darkness in the morning”
The Indy discusses the fanciful notion of the UK adopting a permanent GMT+2 timezone which would see many Scottish schoolchildren see the sunrise whilst in their classrooms and experience an 11:10pm sunset in the summer months. As far as I’m concerned can we please just adopt one time over the entire year and stick with it? Maybe I can adopt GMT+2 myself and just force everyone else to adapt to my personal timezone. Perhaps even have that printed on a business card listed next to my contact details: ‘this autonomous individual operates within the GMT+2 timezone only’.
