British clocks have gone back one hour – our 15 favourite funny takes
British Summertime came to an end at 2 am, hurtling the country back into Greenwich Meantime and 1 am.
You were probably in bed, worrying about the state of the economy, or a no-deal Brexit, or why Mickey Mouse has one dog in his social circle but keeps another as a pet.
The occasion of the clocks going back left people with a decision to make.
It’s that moment of decision. Do I take the extra hour awake with another glass of wine or another hour of sleep?

Is everybody ready for the Longest Day? 25 hours of 2020, all in one day-sized package. What will YOU do with your extra hour? There’s room for almost 4.2% more gloom, despondency or shouting into the void.

Can we all just agree not to put the clocks back tonight in the UK and get this dog of a year done 60 minutes quicker?
