Those with dubious Europhile tendencies – Tim Yeo, Nick Clegg etc – want to diminish Britain’s standing in the world further by ending our alignment to GMT for half the year and switching us to Berlin Time. GMT, of course, stands for Greenwich Mean Time. That’s the same Greenwich in South London and London being the capital of Great Britain. I can never understand why subjects of Her Majesty hate Britain so much and still they are not charged with treason.
Our reaction is one of astonishment that Mr Cable has resurrected this scheme when the Government is so preoccupied. May we suggest a compromise? While the rest of us rise at our normal time, let Mr Cable get up an hour earlier. That way he might actually get some productive work done.
