Clocks go back tonight

Don't forget to put your clocks back an hour this evening, unless your name is Ed Miliband or Nigel Farage.

If your name is Ed Miliband, put your clocks forward 29 years, 364 days, and 23 hours.

If your name is Nigel Farage, put your clocks forward 49 years, 364 days, and 23 hours.

Yes, here we are agian, having completed that pointless bi-annual ceremony where we move our clocks by an hour. Well actually, as so many of them are now radio controlled we don't even have to do that anymore. These days we only have the utter absurdity of it to deal with.

The lights go out an hour earlier in the morning, then they come back on an hour sooner in the evenings. In the spring they will go an hour later both sides. The total insanity of it beckons, What difference does it make? why bother?

We all know the so called arguements, but there is not one that actually amounts to anything. Which ever way they go, forward or back, not a single nano second of extra daylight is created.

Its as mad as trying to solve the nations energy problems by building subsidy sucking wind turbines. I mean, who on Earth would do that..........

In a totally rational world we would leave the clocks where they are let people adjust their timetables to do things at sensible times relative to the time of year.

The trouble is the force of inertia tends to stop that happening, so since WWII governments have used the blunt instrument of fiddling with the clocks.

I have some sympathy with your view.
