Sir: With the millennium approaching, people are becoming keen on the Greenwich theme. The ultimate loyalty to Greenwich would be to stop messing our clocks about and accept Greenwich Mean Time for the whole year round again.

As one who has been on GMT continuously since October 1995, I can assure you this is no sacrifice and it allows a more natural progression through the seasons.

If people became comfortable with year-round GMT, we could scrap BST and encourage other countries under the Greenwich meridian (notably France and Spain) to lean back towards their natural time.
