Over in Wirral where I work they actually have 2 days off on most Bank Holidays, which is nice.....

Personally I think there should be one Bank holiday every week. I beleive they used to be called Sundays.

I'm all for extra bank holidays, I know in some countries there are public holidays for certains birthdays etc and I think the UK should follow - even though we are not part of the UK we do have the same national holidays, plus another couple on top.

In the UK it'll be morally wrong and Politically incorrect, not to mention ageist to celebrate any birthday, national event or other special occasion for fear of upsetting someone.

And Bank holidays will be abolished because its unfair to the unemployed who don't get the benefit of the extra day off....

TV cameras went onto the streets of Manchester to ask anyone who is`nt English,white,or christian, if they were offended by Christmas, and they all said NO.

Up in Scotland an SNP MSP recently campaigned for St. Andrew's Day (I think) to become a Bank Holiday. In the end, he was successful - but we don't really have an extra holiday at all. If employers allow their workers to have that day off, they would have to work another bank holiday, if you see what I mean...

If it wasn't St. Andrew's Day, it was Burns Night or something simular...   Anyway, you see the point that I'm trying to make!
