The current Labour Leader, Jeremy Corbyn, recently talked about added four new Bank Holidays as part of his election plan, which may or may not be a good thing. I wouldn’t add or remove any Bank Holidays at the moment but I certainly think the current set up needs to be adjusted as the layout through out the year doesn’t make a lot of sense. This year for example we have had the May Day Bank Holiday and Easter Monday two weeks apart and its not too long until we have Whitson. So we have three Bank Holidays very close to one another, four if you count good Friday, the there is a three month gap until August and then nothing until Boxing Day. I would propose that we drop the Whitson Bank Holiday and move it to the nearest Monday to All Saints Day and break the year up a bit better.
