A quick look at a map indicates that there seems to be more of the French land mass west of the Greenwich Meridian than there is of Britain to the east. Also, about 80% of the Iberian peninsula is west of Greenwich.

I think it's high time that we gave up the idea of adopting euro time and tell France and Spain in particular to adopt GMT. If they want to get more daylight in their day they should get up earlier ;oP

In reply to mypyrex: I live in Spain, almost exactly on the Greenwich meridien, there is a sign/monument a few hundred mt down the road stating it's o.oo degrees. Some local ex-pats didn't believe it so I checked it out and it's within 5 mts correctly placed.

In reply to Al Evans: Incidently Portugal is on the same time as England, which always strikes me as odd.
