Ever wondered why Britain is in a different timezone to other parts of Western Europe. Well clearly so do some representatives of the British public. Tim Yeo has introduced a bill (follow its progress here) to the House of Commons to align the UK with mainland Europe in matters of the clock.
This is not the way it is being sold of course. The following is Yeo's attempt to describe the situation that would pertain following the change:
"This means that in the summer the time would be British Summer Time + 1 hour and in the winter it would be Greenwich Mean Time + 1 hour."
Would it not be easier just to call it Central European Time?
