DAYLIGHT saving’s second-round trial will begin at 2am this Sunday and debate has once again heated up on whether WA really wants the clock to go forward one hour.
The National Party is again leading the anti-daylight saving charge that seems to have the support of the majority of regi-onal and rural WA residents.
Avon MLA Max Trenorden is encouraging those who want to vent their daylight saving frustrations to pay bills and conduct government business as late as possible in the day.
“The only people they can blame for this is the State Gov-ernment,” he said.
“I’m saying to people airing grievances to put pressure on government agencies.
“It gives people a feeling that they can display some of their rage because there’s a lot of anger out there.
“Realistically, individuals can’t do much that will affect the government other than vote.
“But people are saying to me they want to do something.”
Mr Trenorden said daylight saving had moved past being an issue only for rural people.
“It really does shake up the day for a lot of families with children,” he said.
“Children will be standing outside of school to catch buses or walking home in the hottest time of the day.
“That makes parents angry and they have to organise their day to make sure they are protecting their children.
Despite growing numbers of frustrated anti-daylight saving sentiments, Mr Trenorden said WA would still have to endure the full three-year trial.
