I lived in a country with no DS - Japan. It was broad daylight at 4:30 AM in August and the only people up and out of bed were the elderly with nothing to do but wander the roads aimlessly.

It was actually the easiest year I've had to cope with DLS. Mostly because I was stuck in the middle of nowhere

Was an easy year for me too, thanks to the fact that we don't have it in WA   Smiley

Sunnyside you get to have a play in the afteernoon...darkside its a government plot to upset peoples natural circadian rhythm so they walk around half a sleep and vote conservative.   




Wasn't it put to a vote?
Here in Qld we said NO!
In SEQ it would be okay but places like Mt Isa it gets dark at 8pm normal time in summer. DS is no good up there.


All it does is fade the curtains and wreck the milking times for cows.  Grin

more sunlight also destroys the house paint faster Cheesy


It does not do that - it did however fade the ladies curtains - that is a fact.

DLS debate raises it's ugly head every year in QLD.

2 trials - 2 referendums - twice the vote was "NO".

Accept the umpires decision or move south of the border.

No problems with the decision, its just you hear the same tired old arguments about it.

I didn't know they had two referendums.

One was in 1992 - when was the other?

1992 was over a quarter of a century ago, so maybe it's time a new generation had a say on the matter.

Having said that, I'm not a fan of DLS - if they never have another referendum on it, it would suit me fine.

We've had four here in WA, with the last one being in 2009.

That received a 55% 'No' vote.

I'm good with that   Wink

As far as i know it wasnt put to a vote anywhere else or it wouldnt be.

Oh. I just assumed it was.
In that case perhaps it is time for it to be put to the people to decide.

They tried in 2010 to have one. Something like 60% wanted it.
Was shut down due to regiinal Qld not supporting the bill. But it wasn't for them. It was for SEQ. Bligh said she wouldn't support it due to regional. Go figure. Laingbrook attacked it also.

Wouldn't bother me. I don't work normal hours anyway.
It is very hard for the people trading on the tweed hence it only applied to SEQ, which I can understand.

The tired arguments are those repeated by the pro-DLS people.

In fact I believe they are the ones who invented the cow & faded curtains BS.

And the entire state doesn't revolve around "the Tweed"/GC or Brisbane.

As far as only being for SEQ .... where would you draw the line?

I'm on the Fraser Coast 3 hrs north of Brisbane .. we certainly don't need it.

In late spring & summer it's daylight from 4.30 am to 7.00pm.

Adjust your working hours like many do in summer.

It's not all about tourist operators/retailers.

Hmm, I can't find any information on that.

This fact sheet doesn't include it either:

https://www.parliament.qld.gov.au/documents/explore/education/factsheets/Factshe...

Maybe it was just a privately run poll back in the '70s   Undecided
