LETTER: British spurn call to rise and shine early

From Mr John Tippler

Sir: Sweden is 15 degrees east of the UK - ie, an hour's natural time ahead of us. Copenhagen, Berlin, Prague, Vienna, and Rome, too, are all at about that same distance to the east.

If Brian Wilson's arguments about the benefits are good, all those places should be thinking about putting their clocks yet one more hour further forward. Perhaps I should begin to lobby my Swedish friends immediately.

Yours sincerely,

John Tippler
