Please excuse me if this has already been posted, or it is in the wrong place. This thread relates to a petition on the Downing Street web-site: There are two excellent reasons for signing this Petition: 1. It is A VERY GOOD THING. 2. It might also just give that swine Brown something else to worry about. Number 10 Downing Street has approved a petition that was requesting a new public holiday falling on the Monday after Remembrance Sunday in November each year. To be known as the National Remembrance Holiday, it's purpose is threefold: 1. To emphasise the remembrance of those servicemen and women who have given, and continue to give, their lives for the country. 2. To remind people of the importance of protecting our Nation and what it stands for. 3. To break that 3-month period between the August Public Holiday and Christmas when there are currently no long weekends (especially as the UK has fewer public holidays than most European Countries).
