Stfu, m8.
Daylight savings is only still happening in the UK (and thus also here) because the Scots made a song and dance about it in the 70s. A few people got more light in winter's mornings and the vast majority miss huge amounts of sunlight in the summer.

What time zone are you in? Around here the clocks always went forward in spring and back in autumn.
