Don’t forget the clocks go back one hour tonight


#1

And don’t get it the wrong way round and put them forward! :grin:


#2

“Spring forward, fall backward” is the American expression that always helps me get this right.


#3

Crock of shite, should either stay on GMT or BST all year round. Changing of the clocks causes more problems than it solves. A lot of countries are dumping it now.


#4

I agree. I would prefer to stay on BST all year, and get longer/brighter evenings.


#5

Isn’t it something that we still do for Scotish farmers? or is that an Urban myth?


#6

First time ever I’ve now noticed I prefer GMT in the winter… Having to wake up at 6.45, I struggle with the lack of light. Today was much easier And waking up felt more normal.


#7

We started doing it during WW2 for that reason. No government since has had the guts to abolish it.

I mean heck, they only just recently got rid of squatting rights which were brought about for returning servicemen!


#8

Introduced during the Great War in 1916, and during Second World War it was Double summer time, so GMT+1 during Winter, and GMT+2 during the summer.


#9

You lot are a mine of information. I learn all sorts of stuff I didn’t know about and probably never would have without coming here.

In other words, we don’t half know a lot of shit! :smiley:
