October Bank Holiday

The Croydonian thinks that the TUC's suggestion for an October Bank Holiday is a really bad one.

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?

Trafalgar Day, Mark. So it's the Spanish Ambassador we wish to add. :-}}

The Spanish Ambassador can line up with the French bloke on t'other side then, can't he?

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.
