Subject: RE: BS: Con-dems vs International Labour Day?
For me the thought of extra holiday for Easter and May is a great thought until we get to August knowing that it is going to be the last one until Christmas. It is the one at the end of May that they could move because most of the annual holidays are taken between then and August anyway as a rule. October can be a gorgeous month and it often is the only summer we get in the UK! And I suppose it can soften the blow before the clocks go back, that's of course if they do that this year. On the downside I can see the prices of things being more expensive purposely because children are home as well. So there are fors and againsts really. It is slightly selfish but I like to be able to get around to different guest houses in October in different parts of the countryside knowing that it is going to be cheaper than peak season or when the Bank Holidays are. It all depends where you are at in life.
