"NOTE: Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) is an absolute reference time and
does not change with the seasons. Clocks move relative to GMT. The
UK and Ireland which use GMT over winter switch to British Summer Time
(BST) or Irish Summer Time (IST) respectively. This is one hour ahead
of GMT (GMT+1)"
That's weird, in France we say we're always GMT+1 :)
And from the Wikipedia article, it looks like this is an abuse of
language to use GMT as the UK time, following the seasons. So my whole
country is wrong, how cool is that ? :)
