Thanks jcat

I didn't know!! :oops:

Noooo, and I have a pile of stuff to do this week, that's time loss. Maybe I'll have to cut back on the time spent here :lol:

No, really you shouldn't have told us so half of us could go into work later tommorow....

Just pretend we haven't told you.

Can't - one of my workmates reminded my manager, who reminded the rest of us. LOL though

April fools day is positioned as such so that you can get revenge on these people. :P

But they're on holidays for the next two weeks so I can't. LOL anyway!

Is it true that this may be the last "changing of the clocks" to make winter nights a little brighter?

Welcome to HUKD!!

Where did you hear that??

Thankyou very much, been hiding here for a few months now but never joined.. so thought it was about time
Heard it last week on Radio One, that they were putting it up for vote to the men in wigs.
I understand why people hate wintery nights (leaving in pitch back, returning in even more pitch black) but i like cold dark nights

It was in the papers, Metro yesterday.
Mainly to stop people going to work in the dark (at nights) supposedly it was the farmers who didn't let us change it (due to higher productivity for them.....), when most of us wanted to get rid of the BST time and keep just with the GMT time. Now they have nothing to say.....

i heard on the radio about one minister who was putting forward the proposal of a two hour jump forward, so it's light when people are both going to work, and when driving home, so as to cause less deaths on the road. He was proposing a three year experiment with that.

To be honest I think somebody some where has this idea every year as they stand on a stool to reach for their clock. This year it just happened to be the editor of a magazing. I feel sorry for the staff at my local swimming pool. Their clock is easily 10 metres up and they've only just changed it back an hour in the last month, lol.

Don't take my hour away!
I love that extra hour in bed when the clock's go back.
But I know it is a bloody stupid system. I get really bogged off watching the daylight disappear before I leave work, every day for 4 months! :x
Was working in australia last year - it was bliss - their daylight times varied only by an hour or so - at the most southern locations...(vanishing in a cloud of nostalgia and warmth)
