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?

Not overreacting here but it is a step closer to scrap DST. Also not an expert on time zones but read that normally at 12.00 the sun should be on his highest point and during summertime we are two hours behind.  Personally I don't care that much about time changes but I would prefer summer time aswell sure in the winter it will be like 09.00 before we have sunrise but it could be worse.

I wouldn't mind something like that in the US as long as they keep summer hours. In New York it gets dark as early as 4:30pm. I'd rather that be an hour later at 5:30pm.

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)

Summer time or not, London will never have the same time as all of EU. Middle and Eastern Europe say hi.

They're not abolishing time zones.

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.

Why would you want that?! Honest question.


Because it makes more sense. We're in the central European timezone due to politics, but the actual time here is a lot closer to the GMT.



My only problem is the winter morning hours.

It's gonna suck cause of the cold.

But i don't feel too strongly about it.

Why not change the UK to CET (Central European Time)? Wny must we change to UK time? We are on GMT +1 and not GMT, we have never been on GMT.

I get that, but I don’t understand why someone would willingly want to scrap an additional hour of light in the summertime...why would you want the sun to come up an hour earlier in summer and go down an hour earlier?

You got it wrong. Want they want to do is winter time all the time! Winter is not going to change, summer is.

CET was introduced by the Germans in 1940. The actual time here is GMT + 10-20 minutes.

They are not abolishing Time Zones, that will remain the same. 

UK and Portugal use GMT (currently GMT +1 on summer)

Central Europe and Spain use GMT +1 (currently GMT +2 on summer)

Eastern Europe uses GMT +2 (currently GMT +3 on summer)

 

The difference being that the time will remain the same throughout the whole year, there won't be adjustments in March and October. Which is a very nice decision if you ask me!
