New Jersey...

Residents of the isle of Jersey are preparing to take a vote on whether or not to scrap Greenwich Mean Time and adopt Central European Time instead. This would, of course, bring them in line with their French neighbours and German conquerors. Proposers of the scheme insist that the added hours of daylight will be beneficial for the tourist trade, allowing the opportunity to spend longer out in the evenings, with the added bonus of more time to excavate the remaining children's homes on the island.
Just what would happen to the missing hour, if the scheme is passed, however, is still unclear; in a public meeting to discuss the matter, it was suggested that it should be returned to Gallifrey for a full refund, but the minutes of the meeting showed that this proposal was not seconded.
