That one has been festering for a number of years, I heard about it
first time back in 1990 or so. The scotts are absolutely livid about
the entire notion and I belive the welch are not too happy either.

silly notion of "one timezone for all of EU" to die a rapid death
but that might just wishfull thinking.
