Tick tock, tick tock
DON’T forget – we can all enjoy an extra guilt-free hour in bed on Sunday as the clocks go back at 3am (Spanish time). But on the down side, we will soon notice the dark nights rapidly drawing in.
The aim of changing the clocks in Spring and autumn is to make better use of light. When we move clocks backward an hour in the autumn, we are effectively transferring an hour of daylight from evening to morning, when it is arguably more useful to more people.
The opposite thing happens in the spring.
This year the European parliament voted to scrap daylight saving time by2021. If ratified, it could throw up yet another Brexit-related headache.
If the UK leaves the EU before 2021 and the bloc goes ahead with its plan to scrap DST (Daylight Saving Time), a situation could arise in which for half the year Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland would be in different timezones.
