Western Australia says NO!

I have to say a big YIPPEEE!  WA again voted a resounding NO to daylight savings yesterday.

We've been told that this is the end of the issue for at least ten years now and thank goodness.  I hate it.  And it seems I'm not alone.

West Aussies have been voting NO for years now.  This was the FOURTH vote on the issue and every time NO has been the answer.  The government, in typical "screw what the people are telling us they want" fashion, decided last time to implement a forced three year trial on the state, despite the clear NO vote.  We finally finished the trial at the end of March this year.

And now we can look forward to walking on the beach before work for more months of the year and to eating dinner at a reasonable time during the hottest part of the year. We'll still have plenty of after work hours daylight to enjoy this beautiful area, too.

I'm happy and so are the Girls
