Scrap Bank Holidays (add 8 days to annual leave)
Bank holidays just lead to horrendous congestion and queues.Why not just add the equivalent number of days to people's annual leave entitlement which would then be spread more evenly throughout the year leading to better service from banks,shops etc. which could remain open.
Why does this idea matter?
Bank holidays are an incredibly outmoded concept which have long since failed to be relevant now that all workers have paid holiday entitlements far in excess of 8 days.Surely we need to modernise this aspect of society and improve the availability of our service industries given that we are “a nation of shopkeepers”.
