An extra hour of sunshine please

I am supporting Lighter Later, a campaign to trial double summer time. There will be a vote on December 3rd in Parliament and they need as many MP's as possible to vote yes. If you go to their website you can find information to help you lobby your MP. 

Personally I can't bear these dark afternoons and think of all the energy that could be saved if we had an extra hour of light. A trial of double summer time is supported by many motoring organizations including the AA, as trials have shown there are fewer road accidents when there is daylight for longer in the evenings.

Ok, so the school run maybe a bit darker in the mornings, but at least it won't be shutdown, staying in to play when they get out at 330. 

So go on lets brings some light into our lives.

  1. This is an interesting thought! I hate the clocks going back because it is just so dark and dreary and I find I'm having to put my lights on at 3pm! However I don't like waking up and it still being dark outside, that just doesn't feel right!

  2. Yes I know what you mean about waking up, but at least you know it's going to get lighter very soon, whereas when it gets dark at 3pm that's just it for the rest of the day..

  3. Either way dark morning and dark afternoons are all totally horrible. Bring on the sun!
