Morocco's Daylight Saving Fiasco ~Government change of mind (Don't change your watch)

Within the last few hours before the end of daylight saving, someone in the government had a sudden moment of bizarrely strange logic and thought "Hey, lets put off the end of daylight saving".  

Not mattter that it has been advertised for a year, and that airline schedules and ferry timetables have been adapted - what the hell, let's just extend for a month...  And this is how the news was delivered.... 

Alerte : L’horaire d’été (GMT+1) maintenu jusqu’au 27 octobre 2013Chers abonnés, un changement de dernière minute vient d'être décidé concernant l'horaire d'été. Le retour à l’heure légale (GMT) au Maroc a été décalée d'un mois et aura donc lieu dimanche 27 octobre prochain au lieu de demain comme prévu, vient d'annoncer le ministère de la Fonction publique et de la modernisation de l’administration dans un communiqué. L’heure sera ainsi retardée de 60 minutes dimanche 27 octobre 2013 à partir de 3 heures.

Alert: Summer hours (GMT +1) maintained until 27 October 2013Dear subscribers, a last minute change has been decided for the summer schedule. The return to standard time (GMT) in Morocco was offset by a month and will take place next Sunday, October 27th instead of tomorrow as planned, announced the Ministry of Public Service and the modernization of administration in a statement. The time will be delayed by 60 minutes and Sunday, October 2013 27 from 3:00.

A large number of tourism business managers have contacted The View from Fez and claim that such knee-jerk actions by a government department can cause havoc. Riad owners are suffering from confusion over pre-booked airport transfers.  The last minute making of policy on the run, smacks of amateurism, they say  ... we can only agree.

So forget changing your clocks.... We will let you know when and if they change their minds again...
