Just a thought

Just a thought  –  but isn’t it strange that we, here in England, are the proud possessors of the Greenwich Meridian;  that Greenwich Mean Time was chosen to be the central point for calculating time right across the world;  but that so many British people want to ditch it to “bring us in line with Europe”.  

I’m so sick of that idea.   Why is it always us who have to change?   whether it be time, metric measurements, or euro currencies.

The reason given, of course, is it aids cross border business.   On that basis, perhaps we ought to come into line with America and change our clocks by seven hours.   And don’t forget there are several time zones in one country when you look at the big ones, like America.

The other reason given is road safety regarding dark afternoons.   But if you don’t have dark afternoons, you’ll have dark mornings.

Anyway, back to my original point.   Let’s be proud of GMT, and stick to it.
