Stop changing the clocks

      COITY, United Kingdom

Would you like to see British Summer Time be maintained during the winter months, and a "double summertime" be applied to the current British Summer Time period, putting the UK one hour ahead of GMT during winter, and two hours ahead during summer. It would help the people that work till 5pm have some time to do what they need to do in the daylight hours and it would substantially help people who suffer from depression. Kids could play out for longer, and give more family time together. Aside from the tremendous difficulty and cost of changing clocks twice each year, there is absolutely NO reason to keep daylight savings time. Let Scotland do its own thing, there are three other countries who would benefit from not changing the clocks.

      Because it is an antiquated tradition that is just not relevant any more

      It is obviously a time saver to keep clocks as is and the presented research is correct.

      Our hospital spends a great deal of time correcting the time changes on medical records that have errors. Ridiculous. Not to mention the time of engineers that have to go to each clock in every building where clocks are out of reach or locked down to change the times and the temperature controls on the auto run A/C and heat and auto lighting that must be reset. Please send this to anyone you know. End DST.

      Yes, the changing of the clocks should be stopped, but I believe that we should be on winter time all the time. I believe a "double daylight" time was tried a number of years ago in an attempt to reduce the number of car accidents but it didn't work. Let's end BST now!
