Dumb businessmen

Every year as Daylight Savings arrives, the same dreary business people set up the same clamour to curb the clock adjustments to "bring us in line" with the Eastern States by abandoning the half hour difference between Sydney and Adelaide. I don't know why business people are so stupid that they can't work out time differences. They are not calculated on business urges. They are calculated on longitude. Longitude! They are about geography.
Next they will want us to take on Los Angeles time so they can more conveniently do business there. And then, discovering that Washington and Los Angeles have different time, they will want that too. If the Americans can cope with business across the time scales of their vast continent, our business people should be able to do the same.
