A man from Tredegar is hoping to make history tonight by not turning his clocks back, thus projecting him a full hour into the future.
Colin GlumChops hopes by living one hour ahead of everyone else, that he’ll know what’s happening on Coronation Street before anyone else.
He told WalesOnCraic:
“I don’t know why I haven’t thought of it before. Every year, I put my clocks back like everyone else but I was in bed fiddling with myself last night when it suddenly dawned on me that I could be an hour ahead of everyone if I didn’t. The more I thought about it, the more it seemed to appeal to me – the main benefit is that I will know what’s happening on Coronation Street before anyone else. I’ve been really worried about Ken lately and I’m hoping that he’s going to make a full recovery from his stroke. If I’m an hour ahead, I’ll be able to know before anyone else in the country. Being an hour ahead will also allow me to catch up on the news before it actually happens which will be nice because I’m a busy man and can’t spend all day waiting around for things to happen.”
His wife Suzi said:
“The man’s a tool. Do you want him? I’m selling him for a fiver.”
