Default Proposal to abolish Daylight Savings Time has passed

European Parliament has passed a law that would avoid changing the clocks every summer and winter. The new bill is expected to bring health benefits.

For over a century the clocks were turned back or moved forward during the summer and winter seasons. Evidence has emerged that this has contributed to ill health and for many years there has been much talk of scrapping the Daylight Savings Time.

The Commission will now have to set up a new standard time to replace the current one.

I'd imagine if its introduced over the coming months then it'll probably stay at Summer time.

There's not a hope in hell we will change anything unless our British overlords are also changing.

To the uneducated or just plain dim, the principle reason behind time change in UK is to lessen the incidents of Schoolchildren on the move to their work being hit/killed/hurt by vehicles again because it's still dark and the children 'unlit'...ever been beyond the 57/58th parallel in winter? Do you have the faintest idea what you are talking about in 'clock change'..eh, it's still dark at 8am never mind the weather...so just try not to show your COMPLETE ignorance....clock change is something that helps reduce potential tragedy,stats prove it, if you don't believe me look up the stats/detail...unlikely effort for most dumbfucker(s) here who protest.

I'd say the extra hour of sunlight to stave off depression and S.A.D
would be more useful than imaginary kiddies out on the road

It might lead to reduction in number of B list celebrities feeling the need to bravely "share"the details of their battle with depression!!!
