The United Kingdom is currently on GMT+1, not GMT, due to Summer Time. Belgium, where I live, GMT+2 so for me it will be 04:00.

Very confusing that they didn't adapt it on the website.

But do you know what timezone you're in? You're in BST. Which is GMT+1.

well if anyone is trying to say UK is not on standard GMT right now when it means 'greenwich mean time' (our city!) then that's a bit pants to be fair. we are always GMT. @_@ the rest of the world has their seperate PST or watevr and dont suddenly stick a +1 after it during winter/summer

Don't you just love Daylight Savings and all the timezone issues.

My state (Indiana) only started doing DST a few years ago, and still some parts are 1 hour different depending on what side of the town you are on.

DST is pure stupid. I hate how gross I feel around time changes.

How do you even know when to wake up if you don't know what time it is?!?!

Can you like... show up to work/school an hour late and blame it on DST?

Yeah GMT means Greenwich Mean Time or sun is at it's highest point at noon GMT in Greenwich. If you go to Greenwich tomorrow and take a note of the time the sun is at the highest point you will find it is at 1pm, this is because we are not on GMT time but BST or british summer time (our country).

What did you think happens when we add/remove an hour twice a year, the whole solar system jumps?

in Japan you show up late to an appointment to show that you are more powerful/important, that must be SE saying a message to its customers base. Well they still have 12 minutes to show up ;)

Um...no, this is an international system, the whole world isn't going to adjust its time by an hour simply because the UK decided to do something odd.

Jeez, and everyone says Americans are arrogant.

EDIT: 5 mins late, but it's here now!
