Jump Cut

One of the results of putting the clocks back is that winter, instead of creeping up on us, arrives in a single pounce. It's disorientating. Unnatural. The nights are slowly drawing in and suddenly there's a jump cut and you find it's getting dark when you're putting on the kettle for afternoon tea. Stuart Heritage in the Guardian says we put up with this for the sake of Britain's eight remaining milkmen. My suspicion is it causes much more annoyance than it saves.
