Having struggled through January and February, I'd been enjoying the advent of spring meaning that at long last, it was light again when my alarm went off in the morning.
And then, yesterday, the clocks went forward.
And so today, my alarm goes off and it's bloody dark again. And I've had a lousy night's sleep, having gone to bed at what my body considered the wrong time. And so it's dark and I'm tired and grumpy and why the hell do we let the idiots running this country keep screwing us over by buggering up all our clocks twice every year?
Nobody, not one single person I've ever met, likes daylight savings. The entire concept is universally hated. Nobody supports it, nobody can give one single convincing reason for it. The only reason it's still around is that some companies make more money that way. And that just isn't a good enough reason to piss off the whole country.
DST is an anachronism that belongs in the same place as burning witches and feeding christians to lions.
Although I reckon if you tried to implement "feeding politicians to lions" you'd get an awful lot of signatures in support.
