Us Queenslanders are smart up here. We worked out that you can turn lights on after the sun goes down  ;D

Ive always felt they should reverse daylight saving so you get more light after work in winter.  No probs going to work in the dark but not much to do outside when its dark at 4.45  :'(

15.9 million Australians live in states or Territories that implement daylight savings. That's about 68% of Australia's population of 23.4 million.

So, in essence, 32% of the population are being recalcitrant and causing untold social and commercial dislocation and expense, and then blaming the 68% majority for the problem.  Sheesh!

Funny thing is when I was in Tas a few times my brother would ring around 9pm and ask what i was doing.  Mowing the lawn, building a deck, playing with the kids...

In winter that was over by 4.30!

All jokes aside but, I would love daylight savings up here. An extra hour of sunlight on my house solar panels will do wonders for my electricity bill.

If the 68% didn't follow such a stupid concept and actually left the clocks alone then the 32% wouldn't have to touch theirs would they?

What makes you lot think you have got it right,  and the rest of us have got it wrong?

And 46% of that 32% wanted daylight savings too... (In WA anyway)
So on average, that only leaves 17% of the country that doesn't have it and doesn't want it  8)

Why is it mainly Victorians and NSW people who seem to have the biggest problem with what qlders are doing?

If we are happy with out it, then why let it bother you? Oh that's right, you seem to not be able to calculate a time difference with other states! Geez, and they have a go at QLD people for being a bit slow????

I hope none of you have to deal with WA or heaven help the rest of the world!
 ;D ;D ;D

And the southerners who live in QLD, well you came here because it's the best place to live, why change it? And if you don't like it, well there is a solution to that problem!

Not really. He punctuated quite well and generally made sense.

The thrust of the comment not withstanding.

Not having daylight saving in perth means there is an extra hour of forum posts to read when I get up.

And I can find out an hour earlier how much the market will be down on opening ...

Whilst I'm very much in favour of DST, I believe it should be a Federally managed issue.  The Federal Govt should decide if the whole country is going to have, or not have DST, instead of us ending up with 5 time zones instead of three.
