Hooray, hooray, it’s a holi, holiday…(in Scotland)…

Shock Press: Scottish MSPs decide to award their own people a Scottish Bank Holiday to celebrate their very own patron St Andrew’s Day. That’ll be that there devolution working for them again then….. It’s a good job we don’t need devolution, otherwise I might have got quite jealous!

"It is important to establish the principle of a St Andrew’s Day national holiday. And once the holiday is established I’m confident that recognition of it will grow in the years ahead and, with the help of negotiations between employers and trade unions, it will eventually become an additional holiday".. – Dennis Canavan, MSP.

Well, that’s nice for them, isn’t it? But then again, who's going to give us our St George's Day holiday? ..... Or is it St Edmund?
