Seriously, you don't get a public holiday for the Queens birthday in the UK?
Of course not. Our would be Soviet leaders are not happy about the rest of the world being aware the UK is still a monarchy (and long may it last).

Because it would piss the muslims and queers off, and whoever else gets easily outraged nowadays.

Civil servants get the day off , its just not taken on the day if that makes sense. we usually take it with the late spring bank holiday.

Kind regards,

Rather odd. I get two public holidays for HM's birthdays this year, the Bank Holiday Mondays of 3rd and 31st May.

I think it's just your employer taking the piss. Is your employer Brenda herself, just wanting to forget about birthdays now she's no longer in the first flush of youth? You know what women are like about aging...

I seem to remember the Tories turned the idea down too because they didn't want us wage slaves getting an extra day off with full pay.

Canada takes a day off to celebrate her Queenship..course we wait until later in the year when the possibility of snow spoiling a BBQ p!ss up is diminished.

To save money we piggyback it on a party to celebrate her great grannie, Queen Victoria, who had something to do with setting up the country and picking a backward, out of the way, dump as the nation's capital. Think the old dear used a dart, a blindfold and a gas station road map to select the town.

Sorry Biscuits,But I think you'll find we were being pedantry.
To be pedantic you can't be pedantry you'd have to be pedantic if exercising pedantry.

No no no, one is pedantic, not pedantry. A pedant practices pedantry.

How long do they have to practice before they get good at it?

A true pedant practises pedantry, as in this context, 'practise' is a verb. When you get more practice at being a pedant, you'll understand.
