Is it just me or is this actually only 2 days plus celebrations over the weekend?
In the news yesterday they gave details of this 'alleged' 4-day bank holiday to celebrate the queen's 70th jubilee next year. They said that celebrations will run from Thursday 2nd through to Sunday 5th June.
Never in all my 53years have I heard of a 'bank holiday' being held on a Saturday or Sunday. Yes, bank holidays do always fall on a Monday (with the exception of xmas, new year and good Friday) so the preceding weekend gets called 'the bank holiday weekend' but the holiday itself is only a 1-day affair.
So, why on earth are the government dressing this up as 4 days 'off work' rather than just 4 days of celebrations where people will get 2 days as a BH?
