    Hi all!
    
    Apologies to those who live outside the UK, because this doesn't affect you 
    much.
    
    I read in last Sunday's "Sunday Telegraph" that a bill called the Lighter 
    Evenings (Experiment) Bill is going through Parliament.  This Bill would create 
    a three-year experiment starting on 2006 October 29 whereby the UK would go onto 
    CET (Central European Time).  I believe an identical system was operated during 
    WWII, but I'm not old enough to remember how it worked out.  Comments, anyone 
    (especially from Scotland!)?
    
    David.
