I don't know why an exception can't be made this year to extend DST...we will all benefit from the extra daylight as our freedom inevitably will be curtailed the further we go into winter.
There are so many benefits to all concerned, not least for the elderly and the lonely.

Except for those living in the far north & west?
Scotland, for example, would be in the dark for much longer periods of time.

Umm - they would be in the dark for the same length of time - just at a different time. I lived in the far NW and the sun rose at about 9.30 am and set at about 3.30 pm ish.  If we kept daylight saving, it would rise at 10.30am and set at 4.30 -same length of darkness, just at a  different time.

As an example, London currently has approx 10 hrs 24 mins of daylight.
Glasgow has approx 9 hrs 52 mins.
Isle of Man has 10 hrs 11 mins.

The differences will grow as we approach the Winter Solstice.

Until the advent of the railway, all towns had their own different times, which made it rather difficult to estimate when the next train would be arriving at Platform X - (nothing changes lol.)

I worked for a large company owned by Quakers in the 1950s-1960s.  In those days we had one and a half hours for lunch/dinner. This was plenty of time for everyone to cycle home for dinner or shop in the town centre.  The company then expanded, built a new factory out in the sticks and then asked the employees what hours we should work. Factory floor employees worked 40 pr week, office workers worked 37.5 hours per week.  The company had given options of starting later, closing earlier, shorter dinner hour.

As 78% of our products were exported, our chief salesman and export director had the last word.  Nothing was changed, we worked the same number of hours and we started and finished work at the same time, in order not to confuse our customers.

Iím not quite sure what point youíre trying to make?
There will always be differences in daylight hours as you move north or south.
Changing the clocks will make no difference at all to this.

Thanks, Jen.  That was exactly my point when I replied. DST/GMT doesn't change the length of darkness, just the time!

But it does change the times of day of daylight?
Daylight at 8:00 or 8:30 in SE may be OK, but daylight at 9:00 or 9:30 further north & west can be problematic.
