Does China have to change its clocks back and forth as we do in England?
China abandoned this silly practice decades ago. We have recently put the clocks back in the UK, it's a pain as I used to end up at work early or late when I forgot about it. Still when I did go to work it mattered very little in winter anyway. As I used to go to work in the dark, work in an internal windowless office all day and would not go out because of a power trip crazy security guard. I would then leave work 5.30pm in the dark too. I hate that. It is one of those things which is hard to argue rationally about. Namely as people who think it is a good thing will use emotive arguments like.
"But think of the children!"
Meh hate that.
Anyway I digress
In Hong Kong and Macau they abandoned this practice in 1980. In China they played around with it for a few years then thought bugger this and decided to keep it as China standard time even though it is a massive country and thus spans many time zones. Heh while riding a motorbike in Siberia I would often pass time zones and not realise it.... but Siberia was funny because I was so far north at times the sun stayed just above the Horizon and I had a habit of riding 'till the sun went down' those were some long riding days I can tell you. I even managed to get stuck in no mans land between Russia and Mongolia because of this...
But simply no China does not even though almost every country in the region does move the clocks back and forth.
