British Clocks Synchronized With Those In Continental Europe?

I spotted this article in the Pasadena Star News today:

And many more discussions elsewhere on the Internet:

My own opinion? God, I hope the UK does not adopt what I think of as "Clock Tampering." I hate what we call here "Daylight Savings Time." It makes no sense anymore as most of us no longer live on farms or ranches. It fools yourself and others as to what time it actually is in reality and serves no rational purpose.

If you want to know what time it really it you need an equations of time watch.

It IS kind of sleight of hand, isn't it? I like the idea of the extra hour of daylight after work. It's easier to move the clocks forward each Spring than it is to tell everyone to open businesses etc an hour earlier. It gets everyone on the same page.
