European Parliament pass vote to scrap daylight savings time, European Commission must carry out 'thorough assessment' of clock change

Earlier, the European Parliament voted 384 to 153 in favour of scrapping daylight savings time.

The vote puts pressure on the European Commission to make a decision on the clock change.

MEPs are calling for an end to the EU rule, as studies show the time change can negatively impact people's health.

It is not scrapped yet but what this means => Worst case => We have a bunch of countries who use summertime , a bunch who use Winter time and others who still use the bi annual time changes.

Best Case scenario: 5 o'clock in London will also be 5 o'clock trough the rest of Europe/(EU)

I use the excuse twice a year, when the clocks go forward I always say i thought they went back :P 



We'll probably keep it if we leave the EU anyway. :P



Hmm, pie.

I like that, I've never been a fan of DST.

Don't overreact please....They decided to put it in question and debate about it during the next years and several ongoing decisions....nothing is set in stone yet and it's possible nothing will change.

I would hate the decision actually, since we in Germany wouldn't have long summer evenings anymore. If anything I'd want the winter time to die. I never understood why they make us change the clock in winter so it's dark at 5pm already instead of 6pm, which is early enough. I'm aware that's a local opinion though.

Where do you guys come from and what is your opinion on the matter?



This would mean a whole year wintertime, right?

They should also change the Netherlands, Belgium, France and Spain to the UK timezone, where we belong.

Correct.



Wintertime is the 'real' time. Anyway nothing's happening just yet but I don't care if they do scrap it. It's always been pointless.

Why would you want that?! Honest question.

I agree it's kind of a hassle but I'd definitely care if it would be dark around 9pm in summer already, where I live. I'd definitely vote to keep summer time instead.
