You could say, "If only Sydneysiders were as smart as Queenslanders, and resisted the DST nonsense too."

Heh.. I maintain that SE Queensland is so far east of Sydney that it should have its own timezone.. :twisted:
so.... the whole of Sydney is the western suburbs then....lol

I'm retired so don't need to worry about timekeeping, and completely forgot about this until Monday, when I noticed that the date on one of my cameras was an hour out - all of my clocks and watches are radio controlled, either atomic clocks or because they're digital radio / tv, and reset automatically.

Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said millions "believe that in future, summer time should be year-round, and that's what will happen".
By all means abolish DST, but summer time all year round? I do hope the UK doesn't follow suit.
