And now for something completely different from Brexit.
Bloody British Summertime clock changes.
Is there really any need for Summer time? Debate...

Where I work the clock changes play bloody havoc. Shift start and finishes, do night shift get paid for a full shift of an hour short - many staff on zero hours. Upsets with medication timing. Then bed times...

We look as near to making a decision on this as we do to resolving Brexit.

They tried abolishing the change for a few years when I was young in either late sixties or early seventies. The problem is it only alters the times of sunset/sunrise. I would be happy to think to summer time as that would give the extra daylight in the evening but of course that would mean in winter, even in London,sunrise wouldn’t be until about ten past nine on the shortest day and of course much later in Scotland. If we stick to GMT then it will get dark about eight thirty in London in the summer but sunrise would be about quarter to four which to me seems a waste of daylight. I think Europe is going to stop changing clocks in a few years time if they can decide which way to go. Now I’m getting dangerously close to bringing Brexit into it!


I thought it was kept so that the children in Scotland didn't walk in the dark.

I thought that it was something like that. I can remember no change in about 1973ish that didn’t work out but I don’t no why!

We have street lights nowadays, and so many get driven to school the problem is moot.

Posted by webspider555I’m beginning to wonder whether our government is just incompetent or are all these things happening just to get us in a rage arguing amongst ourselves.
