Do you approve of the clocks going back?

The clocks have gone back an hour – we've left British Summer Time behind and are now back on Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) until the spring, when the clocks will jump forward again.

This means relatively more light in the morning but less light in the evening during the winter months.

What time do you think our clocks should run on?

We try to use technology to limit voting to one per person. Occasionally, this may erroneously block a few people's votes (eg, from shared offices). Apologies for that.
