Before the weekend is upon us and the biannual rigmarole of altering the clocks descends , a quick straw poll to the 3 or 4 contributors to this forum on their thoughts .

1. Retain the present system of altering twice a year ?
2.Stay on GMT ? ( ie winter time )
3.Stay on BST ? ( summer time ).
4. Don't know ? ( admission of not caring unacceptable as an excuse ).

The pros and cons have been discussed ad infinitum and still we are stuck with something that has no relevance today .

Any particular part of Europe ? Iberian peninsular for me but the old eastern block time would suit those who wish to finish work early .

BST +1 = GMT +2 (or UTC +2).
BST = GMT +1 (or UTC +1).

Stay with BST and stop the bi-annual farce.
The Scots, while they are still with us, would probably not agree though.
OK for us Southerners!! biggrin.gif

We need to maintain the status quo so that we are always exactly 1 hour behind CET/CEST. This is because CET/CEST is the standard time zone of the European Union, who are still our biggest trading partner.

How is being a trading partner relevant to the position of our clocks ? Surely it is within the capability of even the most junior member of any company to add/subtract an hour in order than we don't interfere with their three hour lunch break ? Before someone cites the fact that they will be at work before us , I suggest they start work earlier and stop winging .
