THE Spanish siesta is in danger of getting the chop.
The government is considering replacing the ‘Nazi time zone’ it currently operates in with Greenwich Mean Time.
Spain abandoned GMT some 70 years ago as General Franco showed his allegiance to Hitler’s Germany.
And after years of talk about returning to the previous time zone, Minister Fatima Banez is now leading the charge to move Spain’s clocks back an hour.
The move would see the famous Spanish midday nap given the boot, with the working day ending at 6pm inline with the rest of Europe.
“There would be no disruption or confusion for citizens under this proposed change,” Banez said. “I will be talking with employers and unions for their opinion on finishing the working day inline with the rest of Europe.”
She added: “The proposals I have put in place will help employees achieve a better work-family balance.”
