Except in Queensland, Western Australia, and the Nothern Territory. Queensland - AKA the "Sunshine State" - actually had a referendum (required to change state legislation by popular vote) in 1992 about this. They say it fades the curtains.............But jokes aside Queensland is the Skin Cancer capital of the world, they say the introduction of DS could raise the risk of high UV exposure in children by 30%.

What do you think?

Same way they figured out that Iraq had WMD's, I guess.

maybe its the same bunch of people, involved in a sinister ploy to wipe out a good deal of aussies, whilst securing a fuel source for the few who survive the solar onslaught of DST???
