Not often I agree with Peter Hitchens, but on this, he's absolutely right. We should stay on real time - what our longitude specifies, i.e. GMT - all year. If people want light evenings after work and dark mornings to go with them, then reset the working hours, not the clocks.The journalist Peter Hitchens, among others, proposes the abolition of BST entirely, favouring GMT all year round. Advocates cite in their support a lack of practical gains from the adjustment of time, arguing instead that changes in school and/or business hours would achieve similar results without disrupting a scientific standard.
