Once upon a time

Like so many other topics, they will talk about it occasionally but they never seem to get round to actually doing anything. Thus The Observer has a bi-annual bleat about the hour change:
Plans to change the clocks to give another hour of daylight throughout the year are being advanced by Labour and the Conservatives. Both parties believe it would result in reduced energy consumption, fewer accidents and generally improved health.
The paper is also careful to avoid mentioning the real reason for a permanent spring forward, namely to bring us into line with western Europe.

Me, I'm not much fussed either way; but then I don't have to go to school or feed the cows in the dark.
