October Bank Holiday
I think it's bloody brilliant. October 21 st please.
Celebrate it with a march from the square to Waterloo station, making sure that we invite the French Ambassador.

In the interests of historical accuracy, can we have the ambassadors of Prussia, Belgium and Holland line up on our side?

We can't start celebrating all our major military victories with public holidays, we'd never go to work, no such problem for the French.

Pedant's Apprentice, The Battle of Trafalgar was fought between British and French navies, what does Spain have to do with it?
Tim adds: Tsk. The Spanish were on the French side. Combined fleets.
