If there's one thing that we have in common as a nation, it's that we love a free day off work. Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn is trying to score votes by taking advantage of our love for bank holidays by promising an extra four every year.
Currently, England and Wales have eight national holidays every year. Scotland has nine, Ireland has 10, and apparently, the average across all G20 countries is 12. So, we're seriously lagging behind.
Corbyn proposes that we celebrate the patron saints by making St. David's Day, St. Patrick's Day, St. George's Day and St. Andrew's Day all national holidays. That means 1st March, 17th March, 23rd April and 30th November will be added to our current line-up of bank holidays.
Sounds good, right?
