Letter: Time's up

Sir: Having spent the best part of the morning of Easter Day running round the house like a maniac, hunting for instruction manuals in order to change the time display on clocks, watches, videos, computers, etc. I have concluded that the nonsense of summer time should be abolished forthwith.

The concept of making the whole nation jet-lagged may have been viable when most families had only one clock and, if wealthy, father had a wristwatch, but in a modern-day industrialised society its time has passed.
