Is this inadvertent revelation of Horner's thoughts, that we will be racing with hybrids after 2020?
CET is an international acronym for Central Europe Time.
In here when I bookmark a conversation, I can cross-ref. to articles in media, etc. It is useful for my own "administration" when I do search history of my own comments.
Why do you think so?
So Friday 23.46 GMT for this post.
Can’t see me being that organised.
Hmm, right. Looks like you had to hit a lot of keys and check data to create your time stamp. I am naturally a lazy person, so I use Text Expander, and touching gently 3 keys will produce desired data in auto-mode, including my location and weather record, if I need to have it. Little technology pleasures.
GMT is now a time zone (as CET is). More here:
Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) is the basis for civil time today. This 24-hour time standard is kept using highly precise atomic clocks combined with the Earth's rotation.

English speakers often use GMT as a synonym for Coordinated Universal Time(UTC). For navigation, it is considered equivalent to UT1 (the principal form of Universal Time and the modern form of mean solar time at 0° longitude);
Originally, astronomers considered a GMT day to start at noon, while for almost everyone else it started at midnight. To avoid confusion, the name Universal Time was introduced to denote GMT as counted from midnight.Astronomers preferred the old convention to simplify their observational data, so that each night was logged under a single calendar date.
As the United Kingdom grew into an advanced maritime nation, British mariners kept at least one chronometer on GMT to calculate their longitude from the Greenwich meridian, which was by convention considered to have longitude zero degrees, adopted in the International Meridian Conference of 1884. Synchronisation of the chronometer on GMT did not affect shipboard time, which was still solar time. But this practice, combined with mariners from other nations drawing from Nevil Maskelyne's method of lunar distancesbased on observations at Greenwich, led to GMT being used worldwide as a standard time independent of location. Most time zones were based upon GMT, as an offset of a number of hours (and possibly half or quarter hours) "ahead of GMT" or "behind GMT.

Have a read. Lots of links to advanced stuff if you enjoy it.
Broadly brushing Brits as a group that "like to talk about stones and pounds instead kg" is interesting.
I'd rather use the French Republican Calendar than be forced to use only Imperial measures again.
A UK can of Red Bull is measure in ML for instance. Have i bought us back to topic?
