So the powers that be are considering changing the UK’s time zone. The plan would see our time pushed forward an hour, to match much of the rest of Western Europe (like France) and would continue to go forward an hour in summertime.
This means lighter evenings but darker mornings, which will apparently mean huge increases in tourism spending and increased overlap of working hours with Europe (but decreased overlap with North America). That said, we all dislike getting up in the dark and summer evenings stay light till 10pm or so anyway – why would we need it to stay light later?
The strongest argument is that it will lead to a decrease in fatal car accidents. It’s hard to argue against that, really.
What do you think?
