Time for change - EU calls time on daylightsaving

We can demonstrate that we have taken back control by refusing to kow-tow to this EUSSR diktat, and continue to change our clocks in good honest British fashion.
Except that many of us aren't fans of changing clocks.

We should declare the ending of clock changing at 03:00 on 28 October this year. Then it will be seen that the EU is following our lead.
 
There is no escaping geography though - the sun rises in Belin an hour before it does in London.
Indeed; and is a fisherman living on the west coast of Ireland going to want to be in the same time zone as a farmer situated on the Polish/Russian border?
 
I sense the grubby paws of the French behind this; they're still smarting that international convention puts the Prime Meridian through Greenwich rather than Paris!

Kinda late for that. Maybe you should read the article.
 
The article in post #199? The one that says the EU plans to change (rather, not change) in 2019?
The article that says they have already announced that they will cease changing the clocks. Kind of hard to pre-empt an announcement that’s already been made.

And why would they? Unless, of course, somewhere deep down you have actually been taken in by the idea that all of Europe will be on the same time zone?
No, nobody could be that stupid, could they?

Don't care really - so not given it much thought.

I was thinking more along the lines of pre-empting the action to see whether they'd change their minds out of principle.

Even though it was Germany that first started doing it back in 1916, something we then followed?
(Yeah, some little town in Canada started doing it in 1908 but it never really caught on).

And for the non-democratic EU to actually have had an online poll about changing clocks must seem anathema to some, the EUSSR and all that.
(a poll in which some 80% who responded said they were against the clocks changing).
 
Possibly. Or more likely there is a point where the economic disadvantage of being in a different timezone from neighbouring markets is outweighed by the disadvantages of being in a timezone that is skewed from the local geographical time.
Doesn’t seem to be an issue in the USA.
More EU ideology at play,
