Daylight savings

So now we’re on "daylight savings" time for the coming summer(*), which of course is the time of year when we don’t really need daylight savings, because the days are longer. What about if we stayed on summer time all year so we could get a little more light in the winter evenings? Is that such a crazy idea?

Either that or maybe that can organise some huge satellite mirror systems to kind of spread the sunlight around a bit in the winter.

(*) I know the vast majority of you realise that what you’re reading is from Australia. But it’s probably worth just gently mentioning it now, because occasionally I’ll get a mail or two asking why I keep misspelling "colour" or why I’m mixed up with my seasons or some other similarly insular comment.
