In the UK it's probably because we're sick of all the politicians :)

I have two possibly interesting observations.  The first is that DST makes more difference in places like the North of England where the choice is school children going to school in the dark or not: this is usually what scuppers any change in the UK.   The second is that there are any number of heating/lighting/whatever timers now that _know_ when DST begins and ends saving us from the tyranny of having to try to remember how to change the time twice a year.
