Staying on Summertime all year around is good enough reason for me!
Always hate it when the clocks go back.

You do realise we will still get snow and cold horrible weather but just an hour later in any given day?

Good idea from those EU people, but if you are in the UK then the UK Government have already said they won’t change it

Once the Scotch piss off, we'll be able to change it. Its entirely due to Scotch daylight as during the winter the Sun only just appears above the horizon for a few hours and in Shetland for about 20minutes.

They like it to be light in the middle of the day and can use it to make sure the English have to suffer the same fate.

In previous attempts to bring this about I've seen its also preferred by the Scotch public as they too would like a bit of light in the evening as it would improve their social lives. However the great and good in Scotchland see it as a thing of Scotch national importance and fight tooth and nail to keep it.

There is a serious side to it as well in road accidents. It would overall reduce child deaths however there is a north/south divide on this. It would mean a few more would die in the far north but a lot less in the south. When it was tried in the early seventies every child road death in the north of the UK was portrayed by the papers as the fault if the government.

Scotch lives matter, English ones less so it seems.

Tying to threads together - if your solution to transport issues is more road building, then I don't think you can claim to care above lives.

Yes. We may have to get rid of the Party running the country for it's own interests first though.

For those who have not lived as long as I have and possess the knowledge of the history of this proposition before, should know that our previous governments have always resisted such a change. They have done so because in their view, leaving summertime as it is throughout the shorter days, would mean children travelling to school in the dark and increasing the risk of traffic accidents.
