June 2018 says that the EU is willing to bring car tariffs with the US down to zero but"it has to be reciprocal

The commission, the legislative arm of the European Union, compiled a non-binding survey taken by 4.6 million EU residents.

Estonia's economic minister, Kadri Simson, said that "whether or not to change the clocks has been one of the most talked about topics for Estonians this summer".

Asked in an interview with Bloomberg to comment on the offer, Trump said "it's not good enough" and reiterated that the bloc "is nearly as bad as China, just smaller".

At the moment, each European Union member state puts clocks forward one hour on the last Sunday of March and back again on the last Sunday in October.

"I will recommend to the commission that, if you ask the citizens, then you have to do what the citizens say".

For any change to go into effect, legislation must be drafted and win approval from the 28 member nations and the European Parliament. "That remains to be seen", she said, adding she hoped a deal could be finalised by the end of the Commission's five-year term running until October 31, 2019.

However, critics pointed out it could lead to Northern Ireland effectively being on a different time zone and ahead of the rest of the United Kingdom by an hour during winter months.

Rodgers signs record extension with the Packers
Many teams have seen their rosters collapse right before their eyes after paying their franchise quarterback a large sum of money. The Packers and Rodgers came to an agreement on a new four-year deal on Wednesday worth a whopping $134 million.

A giant sculpture constructed with the faces of clocks is seen outside a Paris train station, March 27, 2009 on the weekend when France moves its clocks forward one hour early Sunday morning, marking daylight savings time. Alexander Winterstein, the spokesman for the Commission, said it would be "a sovereign decision of each member state". The survey was conducted between July 4 and August 16.

European Commissioner for Transport Violeta Bulc presented these preliminary results to the College of Commissioners that held a first discussion on the possible next steps. Participation among member states varied widely with 3.79 per cent of Germans taking part compared to 0.02 per cent of Britons.

"Good news that the clock changes will finally be abolished - it was annoying", Lindner wrote on Twitter.

76% of the respondents consider that changing the clock twice a year is a "very negative" or "negative" experience.

One of its keenest campaigners was William Willett, said to be the great-great-grandfather of Coldplay singer Chris Martin, who wanted to avoid the waste of daylight in summer months.

It is claimed the even darker winter mornings would make it more risky for youngsters travelling to school.
