Yay or Nay?

EU to abolish it. UK to keep it. So it seems.

Scrap it. If most of Europe are scrapping it then we probably should too for practical reasons.

Won't it actually mean that, for half a year, the UK would have the same time as most of mainland Europe rather than being always 1 hour behind?

You've never lived in the N of Scotland then? If current DS were scrapped, it'd be dark there till 11.30am.

I did get in the most reading I've ever done in my life during the 3 winters I lived on Orkney tho - pre-internet days, I used to stay in bed reading till it got light at 10.30am!

Post 2020* a mere hour is but a trifle as we'll be 45 years behind in terms of environmental and employment protections, trade, rich people actually paying their taxes, etc

At certain times of the year the farmers round my way work well into dark anyone, just with the benefit of massive lights.

My window cleaner moans about the clocks going back every year, he needs daylight to work in but it is not good have an extra hour daylight in the mornings as no-one wants a window cleaner poking around when they are getting out of bed or having breakfast.

For reference there are more window cleaners in the UK than residents of the Orkneys.

In the 38 games in which ALB played in goal for us, we averaged 1.53 points per game which, had they been over the course of a single season, would have seen us challenging for the play offs. This at a time when we were otherwise struggling against relegation. Oh, and didn't Mick Mills have terrific posture.

It's utterly pointless now - the farmers just need to adjust their working pattern and maybe start an hour later, not difficult.

It is like this in Australia too, where Queensland and New South Wales spend half a year on different time zones - we stayed at a friends in Queensland and they operated a coffee shop just over border in NSW and that was confusing as anything for us staying there a few days - guess you get used to it!

I wonder what the health benefits would be with people getting more sunlight.

Those places have limited sunlight due to geography, not down to DST

Just another thing for Brexiteers to get angry about. They will covet DST if the EU took it away.

In all honesty though its a redundancy nowadays

We are talking about DST and whether to change it here - the *point* is that if it were changed, the N. of Scotland wouldn't get light till 11.30am.

On the shortest day of the year in Aberdeen, which is basically the most northernly city in the UK with Inverness they have daylight from 8:28 to 15:28, does it make a huge amount of difference if that is 9:28 to 4:28?

Every worker doing normal hours, or schoolchild is still going to need to make 1 journey in the dark as there is only 7 hours of sunlight whichever way you slice it

Yeah and the point others are making is why should the whole UK be governed by a few people in the far reaches of Scotland?

As others have said, it's utterly pointless now. And frankly, a bit daft.

No but I live somewhere where some of the daylight is wasted because I am asleep for it working normal hours - whereas none is wasted there working normal hours - there just isn't as much of it!

For something so trivial that doesn't really affect 99% of people, I'm shocked, shocked I tells ya to see so many Very Strong Opinions on the subject.

I didn't even realise it'd happened until someone told me. Still, always nice to have summat to get het up about I suppose!

Fact: changing the clock to the wrong time doesn’t save any more daylight, you still have the same amount
