BST is officially about to end when the winter weather sets and daylight contracts.
By the end of British summer time, the country again means being in GMT, which takes time back by an hour.  When time goes back to GMT, it means everyone gets an extra hour in bed, as one hour is canceled.
Europe will be subject to the same, as the EU’s very conscious summer time is also saved.
Watches in Britain will go back tonight 2 o’clock on October 28 while everyone is asleep.
The shift means that people get an extra hour in bed, but also wake up to a previous sunrise.
] Currently the sunrise is at 7.45 am compared to the 4am summer plan.
The new time means the sunrise will be at 6.45 and greet people with extra daylight when they wake up.
An early sunrise also means an early sunset, which will take place at 4.40 after the time switch.
9459005] Watches go back in Europe
Like the UK, the European Union also uses an initiative for summer time.
This has been around since the mid 20th century when war demanded energy saving by prolonging the daylight.
The EU changes dates while Britain, in summer savings last Sunday in March.
Summer savings for the block will end simultaneously with Britain, on the last Sunday of October.
The EU Directive 2000/84 / EC has given the EU full legislative force over time change in Member States since 2002.
The EU can effectively dictate summer-time arrangements for each member
The directive has been questioned a number of times since it was issued, and many believe that the intervention from Brussels is unnecessary.
Both Spain and France are parties to this arrangement by establishing the 1974 and 1976 rules
. Energy savings were also their stated reasons, in line with their European neighbors.
A recent report has led the European Commission to reconsider the current regime after having made its decision after a public consultation
The report states that “the Commission proposes to end the seasonal variations in the Union while ensuring that the Member States retains its authority to determine its default time “.
In essence, this means the need for summer time in the block, in favor of a centralized time.
Member States may decide whether they retain summer time.
