Spain’s government will consider reversing a decision by dictator Francisco Franco and move the country’s clocks back one hour, the labour minister said on Monday.
Spain was originally in the Greenwich Mean Time zone – along with Britain and Portugal, with which it is geographically in line – but Franco shifted Spain’s clocks one hour ahead to be in line with Adolf Hitler’s Nazi Germany.
Sensible idea. The move back that is, geography is real after all. But this?
Supporters of moving the clock back one hour say it would improve Spain’s weak productivity and allow for a better work/life balance. Due to its time zone, Spaniards have worked longer hours and finished later than in other European countries.
Ignorant ficking puffle. Which hours are worked does not change the number worked.
