BST? Why?

So, what is the point of BST?

Surely all this putting the clocks back/forwards is all a pointless waste of time?

Can understand the switch from BST to GMT makes it lighter in the morning... ...and hence darker in the evening so perhaps that doesn't make sense after all?

But (putting that to one side and going back to what I was originally trying to say), why the switch from GMT to BST. Surely in the summer the length of day is getting so long that the hour this side or that doesn't really make a lot of difference?
