You heard right! Come Oct 31st the occupied regime govt has voted to follow Turkey and NOT change into winter time like the rest of Europe.

This will mean a one hour difference between the Government area and the turkish troop occupied area.

That doesn't sound right to me. Turkey has always followed the European practice here, to the best of my knowledge (and experience).

Here is a source in Turkish explaining that in Turkey the clocks will go back one hour on 30 October 2016:

My apologies. You are right. The decision was taken on Tuesday in Turkey not to move to winter time in October, and the same decision has now been taken in north Cyprus.

Yeah, I read it’s to compensate for the excess gravity Lordo’s brain exerts on the occupied territory.

Just a minor technicality they had to sort out...

The Turks should permanently change to Mongolia Timezone to be in sync with their homeland. At least they realized that Europe is not for them!
