[ntp:questions] GMT: UT1 vs UTC

Come the winter, for us in the UK date(1) reports:

Thu Oct 30 11:01:15 GMT 2003

when in fact for almost everyone's computers it's UTC, which is +/- 0.9s
from GMT.  And the `Greenwich Time Signal' on the radio is UTC(GPS)
these days, too.  Does anyone have a clock which actually ticks UT1?
