Summer/winter time - for or against?

Next weekend we'll have to set our clocks right again - from 3 am to 2 am. Not that most of us will do that in the middle of the night... rather before going to bed or when you wake up.

But it's a change anyway. This time we can sleep an hour longer. Myself, I don't have a lot of trouble with changes in time - didn't suffer from jetlag either - but my sister does, and so do lots of other people.

There are groups which want to protest against this switching of times. But it's now a European question and I don't think they'll cancel the rule. Too many groups of interested parties are looking over the shoulder (pharmaceutical firms, for instance, which produce pills against sleeplessness or provide pills which make you feel better during the day....)

Especially animals and little kids suffer from this change in time. And you know that a kid who hasn't got its night's rest will be nervous throughout the day - which makes mums and dads tear out their hairs as well.

So, what do you think? Should we get rid of this change in time???
