Vote for me and I'll throw in some extra holidays for free.

And do we really need yet another bank holiday in April? I'm all in favour of more holidays, but Jewemy didn't think it through.

TODAY should be a bank holiday in England, as it is St. George's Day.
Instead of the Mayday holiday, which was forced upon us by the trade unions in the seventies.

Those nasty trade unionists - how dare they make us have another holiday, particularly on one that coincides with a traditional spring festival and which in UK has LONG had a long history of celebrating. The Tory desire to remove it as a holiday is nothing but political spite.
However, I agree that St. George's Day should be an English holiday and that we should also have other holidays - perhaps celebrating the UK or the Commonwealth.

Sussex Jim, generous soul that he is, has always donated his Bank holidays to hard-working bankers. He can always be found working 24/7/365 just to show those evil trade unions what's what.

I think we need at least another two public holidays: one between new year and Easter, and one between the end of August and Christmas (Trafalgar Day or Nov 5th would be good).
And one between the late May one and the August one would be good, too. Midsummer day would be good.
I don't know if it's still the case, but at one time we had fewer public holidays than any other country in Europe.

Northern Ireland and Scotland both get a couple of extra days already - St Patrick's Day and 12th July in NI and in Scotland an extra day at Hogmanay/New Year plus usually a regional holiday, the exact date of which varies in different parts of Scotland but which is usually mid-Julyish. So England has always been a bit undercooked when it comes to bank/public holidays.
