Greg Kelton of Adelaide Now reported (October 01, 2008 11:50am) daylight saving started this weekend down under, and noted that "any further attempts to have South Australia move to eastern standard time will be rejected by the Rann Government."
"Premier Mike Rann said today that with the onset of daylight saving at the weekend, earlier than normal, there had been suggestions of shifting permanently to EST.
"This would put SA on the same time zone as NSW, Queensland, Victoria and Tasmania.
"On Sunday, SA moves to daylight saving four weeks earlier than in the past prompting protests from communities on the state's West Coast. Mr Rann said the latest daylight saving trial was already locked in."
The newspaper ran an online poll asking readers…
