Exactly! I don't think the winter time benefits anybody
"The winter time" (GST +1) is the normal, unadulterated Swiss time. If we were to "leave the clocks alone" we'd have the same time in winter -- the sun would still go down early. The change due to adopting summer time is to benefit lovers of long sunny evenings in summer. It has no impact on winter days.

But yes, there should be a referendum to have the orbit of the Earth around the sun altered.
