Funny how the Tories have remained quiet about this year's May Day Bank Holiday, appended as it is to the festering nuptials. The constant parade of choleric Colonels who want it to be shifted to Trafalgar Day or to commemorate Hitler's birthday is not a spectacle that I can warm to, because after all the material comfort and wealth of the country has largely been founded on the efforts of the workforce.
I suppose it is better than nothing to be granted another day's holiday, albeit for a cause that is almost entirely irrelevant. May Day has so much more resonance of both collectivism and paganism that I'm sure it will disappear. But in the words of our dear leader we should all calm down and carry on.
