MEPs vote to scrap twice-yearly clock change by 2021

#1

If the UK leaves the EU, the government will be free to maintain British summer time, meaning Northern Ireland would have to choose whether to have a one-hour time difference with Ireland or the rest of the UK for half the year.

Seems silly to me and can only cause chaos in Northern Ireland…

I haven’t read this particular story but when this was being mooted (they did a public consultation which I made a submission on) the plan was that it would be up to each member state whether they changed or not. So not centrally mandated either way.

You may be right but I vaguely remember reading about this a few months ago and have a feeling it will be voted on a qualified majority system. Would seem silly to remove the national veto for something like this though
