Keep Sunday Special

Interesting to note the Guardian headline: No 10 concedes Sunday trading defeat after Commons rebellion. The large number of more than 2000 comments indicates that this is clearly a 'hot' issue. The 'bottom line' (literally) in the Guardian article would appear to sum up the situation nicely: “The current Sunday trading rules are a fair compromise, which has worked well for over 20 years.”

Is there any hope that the irritating Sunday noise generated by DIY & gardening equipment and other sources (even noisy road repairs in residential areas!) that is all around us in Britain will become 'socially unacceptable', as in Germany, for example?
