This is an old opinion - many have suggested it but no one has bothered with it

Why not?

One of those things.

It's been around a long time (I think certainly since the Middle Ages, as Ibn Khaldoun was saying something like it in his Muqaddamah). It's one point of view, and one that has a lot of weight especially in areas of the globe with abnormally long daylight. Alternative ideas say similar things (e.g. fast according to the nearest Muslim country on the same longitude - that would be Morocco or western Algeria for the British Isles).
