Hi Richard

Vote NO and just get up an hour earlier if you want to. people can get up earlier without mucking up the clocks, and businesses can start work earlier without mucking up the clocks.

NO vote is for choice. Yes is a vote is for Dictatorship.

Hi Richard,

"And remember to VOTE: YES "

Why would I do that???????? I can go to the beach at any hour of the day, I am not interested in dealing with businesses in the Eastern States, if I was I would get up earlier if need be.

Quite frankly I hope that this will be the last of DS in this State however I have that feeling that if the NOs get in it will raise it's ugly head yet again. My opinion only.

Cheers

Perth is roughly 24 minutes behind the solar time without the ridiculous resetting of the clocks twice a year.
California is 3 hrs behind New York time and somehow has no problem with conducting its business across the USA.
Hong Kong and Singapore, with whom many Perth businesses conduct much of their business are in the same time zone as Perth.
Letting the kids out of school into the hottest part of the day is simply not very clever.
Maybe we should all come to our senses and programme in a three hour siesta into the day.

Rolly with the wonders of modern internet and the BOM site that furphy of letting the kids out at the hottest part of the day went out the window. frequently it is hotter from 3.30pm on than between 2.30 and 3.30 WST

and coming from a pretty hot weatbelt town with pre fab classrooms and no fans we had DLS and it made alot of sense as come about 1.00 it was often too hot and they would take us down the pool.
Without DLS we would havve frequently of missed an extra hour of school

If stockbrokers want to play the eastern states stock market they can get out of bed an hour earlier,they dont need me to get up with them.
Im sick of big business wanting to change clocks around so it suits them.
Those December January afterooons are just too long and hot

I love WA its a fabulous place.

Three problems with the state in my view (Unless they have changed anything since I was last there)
No Daylight Savings, Shops shut on Sunday and the price of Dim Sims in the Fish & Chip Shops.

All mean WA is rather regressive compared to the civilized East Coast :-))

As can be seen, most of us are thoroughly against daylight saving in WA. Votes from people living in other states don't count! Let's hope this one will be the last.

Thanks for the link Doug. I hope to be on the road by then, so need to do a postal vote. We totally missed the last state election - to late to do anything about it by the time we heard the election had been called. I don't want to miss voting on this one.

Hi Deanna

Hoping to see a bit more of Oz this winter. We'll spend a bit of time with our new grand daughter (Boxing Day baby) in the Pilbara, then head east via the Gary Junction Road. This time we plan to see north of Alice Springs, and where ever the road takes us. The Adelaide show and ram sale is in September, and my bet is that what ever the navigator says, the driver will turn that way. We'll probably be away around four to five months.

Sounds fantastic, we don't have any plans this year so far but that could change somewhat. There will be the usual short trips, Albany, Bunbury, Margaret River, Shark Bay but nothing big yet.

I think I would like to just go and park the van somewhere in the Murchinson/ Pilbara for a while, just relaxing and enjoying the sun but we'll see.

Enjoy your trip

Cheers

For years they tried to get daylight saving in QLD, especially during the Bejlke-Petersen era.

Old Jo wasn't going to have a bar of it.

He reckoned the sun shone out of his arse and he wasn't going to get up an hour earlier for any bugger.

Its the NO vote here and the same from wife.

But by what I've read the question is rigged so when the NO vote wins they can still introduce a shorter period.

I will certainly be voting YES.

For a number of reasons.

I work in a national business and found 3 hours time difference with the eastern states a pain. Not unworkable but certainly difficult, and it was not the morning that was a problem, but the fact that I had just come back from lunch when they went home.

I also work with China - 1 hour difference one way or the other is not a problem.

I also believe that the comments about the tropics is unconvincing. I lived in T'ville when Qld had daylight saving, and loved it. Had young kids at school with no problems, and in fact when there was no DLS many schools started earlier in the morning when it was cooler.

I have also lived in UK where getting up in the dark, and getting home in the dark was a fact of life for half the year. Same as at the moment in Perth where I leave for work with the sun rising. In summer there, it was daylight till 11:00 at night and kids still slept.

Hi bgeeni

Then get out of bed two hours earlier and work the same hours as your ES counterparts - but don't expect the rest of us to when it does NOT suit our businesses.

Hi Wayne

Most local businesses (eg grocery store) are not linked to ES, so would not be in the category of those wanting to be in sync with ES counterparts. Really, there are not many that would. We have coped with 11 am - 3 pm bank hours. So long as we know of a businesses opening times, it wouldn't matter in the least. Businesses we frequent in our town may open 8, 8.30 or 9 am, and close 5 or 5.30 pm. We know who is open when and visit accordingly - no whinging at all.

When daylight saving was explained to him, an old (American) Indian said -

"Only the Government would believe that you could cut a foot of the top of a blanket, sew it onto the bottom, and have a longer blanket."

A better anaalagy would be if your blanket is too short and your shoulders warm but feet cold then the cutting trick would work perfectly

Why go to all that trouble cutting and sewing, when all you have to do is move the blanket? Just move YOUR blanket - not make us all move ours too.
