Change to CET for England Only just call it GMT +1 +2 etc

More light in the winter. Most people in the mornings are going to work, so it does not matter about wheather it is light or not.

The evenings are where it counts.

It would encourage more spending, outdoor activities etc. The Scottish and Welsh may complain about this,so as they want to be independant, after all they have their own Parilmentary system, they can stick to their own changes.

This would apply to England only…no offense to Scotland and Wales there. but i think its the right way forward.

Why is this idea important?

TRY OUT CENTRAL EUROPEAN TIME IN UK.

Have GMT + 1 hour in winter, GMT + 2 hours in summer. National vote. Suggest that Ireland & Northern Ireland have separate vote but counted as if one country. Also give Scotland separate vote. They may wish to keep current system. This would not be a problem. Or a compromise, GMT + 30 minutes in winter. GMT + 1 hour 30 minutes in summer for whole of UK & IRELAND|.

Daylight saving – permanent 2 hour shift

There would be several advantages to shifting our clocks forward by 2 hours all the time.

The conventions of UK society do not match the times of daylight.  Schools and shops start at 9.00 (instead of 7.30 or 8.00 on the Continent).    In the summer, even with our 1hr shift forward, a lot of daylight is wasted in the mornings before anybody gets up.  This is also true in October and March.  The centre of most people's day is around 2.00pm or later.  For example a school child might get up at 8.00 and go to bed at 9.00pm so his day is centred at 2.30pm.  A London commuter gets up at 7.00am and goes to bed at 11.00pm – day centred at 3.00pm.

It would save power for lighting if the centre of people's day matched midday by the sun.  This requires a 2 or 3 hr shift forward.  It would also give more time for outside activities in the  evenings.

It is often said that Scotland would not like this.  Well, they have their own Parliament and so can set their own time.  The UK Government could then consider charging them a Carbon Tax for wasting power that could have been saved.
