Last edited: 31 Aug 2018 Was anyone aware of this? https://ec.europa.eu/info/consultations/2018-summertime-arrangements_en and https://www.rte.ie/news/europe/2018/0831/990719-daylight-saving-time/. The EU press office reports on the results of the survey as “84% want Europe to stop changing the clock” http://europa.eu/rapid/press-release_IP-18-5302_en.htm, but it's not 84% of Europeans, it's 84% of the 4.6 million who responded to the survey, i.e. 3.86 million of the EU's population of 840 million, i.e. 0.43% of Europeans, i.e. toss all. Apart from the questionable use of relative probabilities by the Commission to give the impression that a significant number of Europeans want to end daylight saving time it does seem to be an excessive level of standardization. In any event, it's unlikely the UK would change if the EU does; if only to show they're different; so we could have a 'temporal border' on the island of Ireland with an hour difference in time in daylight saving time between the two jurisdictions.
