Yes, that change seems quite plausible. However, that news report merely says 
Fátima Báñez (the minister of employment and social security in Spain) wants to 
move Spain from +01/+02 to +00/+01. Since the news report also says the PP (the 
political party she's a member of) already agreed to this in August, there's 
nothing new there that I can see.

More interesting to me is that the Reuters article said that Franco moved the 
clocks ahead to "be in line with Adolf Hitler's Nazi Germany". We don't have any 
record of such a switch in our database, I expect because Shanks is wrong.
