As someone who has never held down a '9 to 5' job, when I get up and go to bed 
varies and is more in line with what the sun is doing anyway :)
I read the comments about 'taking a foot of the bottom and adding it to the top' 
and the other 'debate' on simply changing opening/school hours comes to mind. 
Instead of DST we have to start monitoring 'summer time' ... i.e. when opening 
hours change ... which I think takes us right back to how this all started 
anyway? :) Bring back BST ...

The UK debate on GMT+1 or +2 just misses the same point ... it's simply 'office 
hours' which are wrong and it would be interesting to see these days just how 
many people actually work '9 to 5' ? MOST offices have staff in before 8 or 
after 9 anyway and I don't remember having a 9AM lecture at university 30+ years 
ago ...
