(Newser) – Worried your country isn’t being productive enough? Change the time zone. That’s one idea Spain is considering: A parliamentary report recommends moving the nation's time zone one hour earlier to match the UK and Portugal. It says the change would improve eating, sleeping, and working habits.

typical of the spanish to think the reason it is not achieving anything is because the clock says one hour forward. of course the answer is that spanish should spend one extra hour asleep. then they will achieve twice as much! i can see they had george osborne working out the calculations. best spanish response to this article? "eeeeeeeeeeehhhhhhhhh....... que?"

I don't care if they jumped around in 6 different time zones to give them a minimum of a 30 hour day, these lazy asses still wouldn't even budge their 'productivity' levels. They do excel in the Special Olympics though, challenging the French for first place.

It is a little too far west to be in the same time zone as Rome and Berlin.
