Sign our petition today, and show the world that not everyone falls for the con-tricks of “daylight savings”!

We the undersigned believe that changing the time displayed on our clocks every six months is an old-fashioned waste of time.

We urge the UK government (and governments around the world) to move to a single fixed time zone all year round, and allow individuals to plan their own days to make use of the daylight however they see fit.

    It has been proven that there no advantages to Daylight Saving Time and yet the powers that be in the U.S. continue to do it anyway! I hate it! When we go on it I am “off” for eight months!!! It’s not just useless, it’s harmful to health and it’s costly! Please sign this petition and get as many people as you know to sign it so we can stop this exercise in futility! It’s past time (pardon the pun) for DST to be abolished! (I am American, speaking for the USA!)"

Even those that start work at 8/9am would I\'m sure be happy to forsake any morning daylight for an extra hours daylight in the evening!!! Please put a stop to this old outdated madness!!! Thanks.

EVERY year twice a year my body clock is messed with and it leaves me feeling awful for several weeks post change every time! I CANNOT understand the reasoning behind it and the gain of a couple of weeks whereby it\'s marginally a little lighter earlier each morning is simply not worth it! As a child I was lead to believe that it was introduced to assist farmers gain an hour\'s extra working time – modern farming has no need for this – mechanisation of farming has given them sophisticated (often GPS driven) equipment that means they can farm around the clock – unhindered, in fact without a farmer needing to be in the cab! Another argument put forward was children walking to school in the dark – back in the days when children DID walk to school the gain was and still is only apparent for a couple of weeks then nature catches up and it\'s dark again – where is this beneficial? The health impact (concentration levels, grogginess, irritability etc.) is simply NOT worth this nonsense. I for one would like to see it ended and I can\'t believe we \'sheep-like\' continue to follow this ridiculous practice. Benjamin Franklin idea was a good one in Benjamin Franklin\'s day – it\'s 2015 people – WAKE UP!!"

The spring forward doesn\'t effect us so much but the fall back makes for a long and unhappy winter time. Every single year. PLEASE stop changing the clock I don\'t know anyone who benefits from it."
