Daylight saving in Queensland September 4, 2009

I vote no. We don’t need it. They were talking about it in the news again. According to a television news poll, 64% of people voted yes to having Daylight Savings again. Idiots. Why do they want it? They claim it makes dealing with the southern states that also have daylight savings easier. Boo-bloody-hoo. Such small minded businesses. I’ve worked for small (in terms of staff numbers) companies who deal with partners and clients in other countries! “oh no! I have to be in the office at 6pm so we can call the client, for whom it will be 7am”

Suck it up, you idiots. That’s the lamest reason I’ve heard of for needing Daylight Saving.

And according to wiki “Although an early goal of DST was to reduce evening usage of incandescent lighting, formerly a primary use of electricity,[7] modern heating and cooling usage patterns differ greatly, and research about how DST currently affects energy use is limited and often contradictory.”

Ms Bligh said they might consider a separate timezone for the SE corner.

That would be because that’s where most of the businesses are that want it, and where most of the idiots who want it live.

There’s no need for it for business reasons, and if it’s for “leisure” reasons, just start work an hour earlier, finish an hour earlier, then go do your leisure stuff and don’t foist your needs on others.
