Spaniards don't sleep enough, and go to bed too late. The answer is to change their time zone to the same as Portugal and the UK

This article is rubbish, as we have come to expect from the BBC.

It states: "Spain - on the western edge of Europe - is currently one hour ahead of GMT during the winter and two hours ahead in the summer."

Spain is NOT two hours ahead of GMT in the summer, I think I would have noticed! It is an hour ahead all year round and we change our clocks on the same day as the UK. And as somebody in the comments section said "we live by the sun, not the clock". Have also not read a thing about it in the Spanish press. I think the BBC just make things up as they go along.

Technically correct, but misleading.
An hour ahead of GMT in the winter and an hour ahead of BST in the summer, would have been easier for the general public to understand.

In other words always an hour ahead of Britain.

Like here in France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany ... Does that mean that none of us get enough sleep? Go to bed too late? Rubbish!
