The British Government want at least 300,000 votes in order to allow England an extra bank holiday every year for St. Georges day

Please vote and send to all your friends!There are not enough public hols in the UK!

Hopefully that will stop all the moany marjories bitching about St. Patricks Day! It drives me nutty every year when English people complain about how something is done for St. Patricks Day but not St. Georges Day, its not that hard to get off your arse and organise something in your community if it bothers you that much.


Come faeries, take me out of this dull world, for I would ride with you upon the wind and dance upon the mountains like a flame.

Man holidays are great, I say go for it. I take it that will mean days off from school as well as banks??

Bank Holiday is just what we call a national holiday o'er here in Blighty.
