According to this ekathimerini article Greece now faces a fine of €17,650 per hour for putting the clocks forward...or does it? The article also says that the EU law comes into force in 2021. So which is it?

Well I suppose that's what happens when date, day and time have no meaning. Usually I can spot them but not this time. Scooby will be wetting his pants laughing.

I don't think that one would have caught me, Jean. While careful inspection shows that they are not identical I would have immediately guessed that it was a mash up of the entrance to Souda and the Rio Anterio bridge near Patras. Given the state of the National Highway down there it is a good attempt.

Interestingly it wasn't an April fool generated by ekathimerini but a deliberately leaked report from the European Commission office in Athens to alert people to fake news. See the updated article.
