Remembrance day bank holiday

Number 10 Downing Street has approved a petition that was launched requesting a new public holiday falling on the Monday after Remembrance Sunday in November each year.

To be known as the National Remembrance Holiday, it's purpose is threefold:

1. To emphasise the remembrance of those servicemen and women who have given, and continue to give, their lives for Britain

2. To remind people of the importance of protecting our Nation and what it stands for

3. To break that 3 month period between the August Public Holiday and Christmas when there are currently no long weekends, especially as the UK has fewer public holidays than most European Countries.

If you are in agreement, please sign up to the petition - it only takes a few moments - and it would be great if you were minded to forward the link to other people as well.

Doubt my boss would agree with that, he thinks we have too many local/public holidays as it is.

I'm waiting for a polish bank holiday to be announced here in scotland!

Yeah well see they have started to get wise now. Go like the clappers when they first arrive but soon slow down to our brittish standard. Human rights then sets in and before you know it they have us by the balls and over a barrel.
