I had a similar problem in the US for Arizona.  We observe day light 
savings time and mythweb would get it wrong half the year.

Adding this to php.ini worked for me.

; Defines the default timezone used by the date functions
; http://www.php.net/manual/en/datetime.configuration.php#ini.date.timezone
;date.timezone =
date.timezone = "America/Phoenix"

Maybe something like would work for you.
