Time to stop

I hope your article about For/ Against changing clocks twice a year (see here) was an April fool joke.

There are the same number of hours of daylight no matter what we do with the clocks. People will still undertake the same activities during the summer so whatever they decide with the clocks will not change any environmental impact.

“Cows stopping giving milk for two days.” This from a Brussels MEP who can have a great impact on our lives. They could, of course, be French cows deciding to strike to teach the humans a lesson...

In all the years I have read Connexion, I have never read so much nonsense – and, most importantly, by people we pay to shape our lives.
