Re: Another Election. National Holidays

"A Labour government will seek to create four new UK-wide bank holidays on the patron saint's day of each of the home nations, Jeremy Corby has said."

Pathetic. Is this the best Labour can come up with? Sure we need more National Holidays but naming them after the four patron saints of the home nations! Really?

Some of these politicians don’t know what a box is, let alone be capable of thinking outside it. Other countries have loads more National Holidays than we do. In Japan for example National Holidays are held to celebrate things like the Spring Equinox, Respect for the Elderly Day, Culture Day, Children's Day, Sports Day (celebrated to promote the physical and mental health of people through sports), etc etc.

And we should stop calling them 'Bank Holidays' after what the banking riffraff did to us a few years ago! Though credit were credit's due to (Sir) John Lubbock who more-or-less kicked off the Bank Holiday tradition and who, among many good deeds, purchased Avebury in 1871 when the place was threatened with destruction.

More creative names for our National Holidays please.
