Dr Mayer Hillman, a public policy specialist at the Policy Studies Institute, explains the advantages and disadvantages of the UK moving ahead of GMT to European time.

Last year, Prime Minister David Cameron indicated he was willing to consider a switch and the BBC has been told proposals will be published by the Department of Culture, Media and Sport in the coming week.


This is quite interestning!! Another move of the pawn for NWO ??

The Lighter Evenings (Experiment) Bill [HL] was introduced in the House of Lords on 30th November 2005 by Lord Tanlaw. Lord Tanlaw has provided some Background Notes to the Bill.

It effectively seeks to move the UK to Central European Time for an experimental period of 3-years to produce "lighter evenings".

Notes - Government Position

"the Government see no reason to change the existing arrangements, which we consider to be a satisfactory compromise between those who prefer lighter mornings and those who prefer lighter evenings. Recent informal discussion with stakeholders representing both business and workers shows no strong desire to change, with some being strongly opposed to change."

"convention dictates that the Government will treat the Bill in a neutral way when any voting is involved in your Lordships' House"

This is interesting but why do we need an extra hour of daylight? I heard the guy but i don't see the point, what's the point in changing something that isn't broken? Just sounds like a way of making us into a proper EU superstate.

it was tried and abandoned in the seventies. i watched a parliamentary session on the matter and i must say it is vested interests at play here with an emphasis on tourism. i will try and find some stats on consequences of the seventies try-out

I'm pretty sure it was only Scottish farmers who complained about the possible change due to lack of light in early morning but I can't recall the full details I read at the time of the proposals. All I do remember is fully agreeing and thinking it should be brought into fruition

apparently the national farmers union eased their resistance to the proposal. maybe they're in line for a CAP audit!
not so sure about the proposal myself, i think i'll be reading a touch of hansard in days to come.
