1) London time in the winter (DST=0) is equal to GMT!

2) If your PC or server is in Europe you can get the actual DST (either 0 or 1) if you use TimeDaylightSavings().

3) Outside of EU you have to get from elsewhere either you take it from here or you calculate it yourself according to the rules here.

So London opens always at 08:00 London time which is now (no DST) 08:00 GMT.
