Spring DST  starts Sunday,  28 March 2021 at 2:00 AM, jumping the time to 3:00 AM. The European Parliament voted to abolish the unpopular DST by 2021 the EU is leaving it to its member-states, individually, to decide whether to stick to, or drop, DST. So far nobody has come forward with a rejection plan. The blame for the "procrastination" is on the pandemic aggravated by Brexit. There simply is too much on everybody's plate to be adding one more heap, worrying about what to do with the bi-annual changing of the clocks!

The European integration, as we know it today – i.e., the EU – is responsible for the unprecedented economic prosperity in Europe. Moreover, during all this time no European major power has gone and waged a war, giving rise to the longest reign of peace in over 2000 years of European history. Perversely, as if to reward the Brits for Brexit, US President Donald Trump has dangled a “massive” trade deal in front of them.

Somehow I always felt that "Europe" began at the Pyrenees, leaving Spain as a magic island of cultural heritage. What has the EU really done to improve the life of the average Spaniard except complicate the panorama a bit more? Perhaps there has been a forward-looking push from up North that has subtlely changed the traditional Spanish attitude of xenophobia. Perhaps some modernization has occurred and the economy is more robust than before. But Madrid is not Paris, and Barcelona is not Berlin, and Rome will always be Rome. If the British can say "no" to the Continent then others may follow suit.
