We had permanent summer time “British Standard Time” between 1968 and 1971.

The EU is going to abandon summer time in 2021 so unless we do, there will be a time border between NI and ROI 6 months of the year.

Before 1916 Ireland was in a different time zone to Great Britain.

Why didn't they just have a lie in and start work later during the Winter months? Fiddling around with the clocks doesn't actually give you any more hours of daylight in a day, it doesn't magically change the Earth's relative position to the Sun. The whole notion of putting clocks backwards and forwards seems to me to have been a pretty pointless excercise from the very start, it makes little sense at all when you really think about it.
The mind is a powerful thing, many intelligent people cannot control.
