Until the Scottish and Irish complain AGAIN as happened in the past!! If you leave the clocks forward one hour on DST, in mid-winter it won't get light there in the morning until gone 10AMSupra wrote: ↑Sat Oct 28, 2017 2:07 pm100% agree. All the criteria remotely relevant to why we have 'Daylight Savings Time' has long since disappeared. For example, Coal-Saving in the early 1900's (whatever 'Coal is? ) & the energy Crisis of the early 1970's. There is good evidence that BST. is better for health & mental outlook reasons, particularly in child development.baz1 wrote:its about time they left the time as it is they have been saying it for years but never do it
Quite how one resolves having the actual GMT. in the country that is 1 hour forward of that is another hiccup! Allegedly many polls indicate around 60%-vs-40% in favour of permanent change to BST. but the government are not likely not consider a change until around 95% of the entire population call for it. I've got 16 time-based household, car & garage items to manually change in a modest 2-bed property! Whoops....forgot the cameras, make that 18!!
Bearing in mind we haven't had a worthwhile nationwide referendum for some 16 months now, how about it?
1 here for BST.
It has been tried before and it was reverted back. There is actually no reason to put the clocks on to Daylight Saving Time (its not British Summer Time btw ) in the first place. Our clocks should remain on GMT forever and a day, absolutely no reason to change them forward and put them back.
Survival of the Fittest.
