I thought this sounded like a great idea, then I read the reason why. Think-tank says 'downgrade Christmas' - Yahoo! News UK While we're selling our national culture (rather, the tattered remnants thereof) down the pan, perhaps we should change the name of our country to doormat-land? No, wait! According to some unelected think-tank (some members of which, I suspect were created and live in damp, low light environments) we're not allowed to have a national culture anymore. Problem solved. I'm entirely in favour of integration, fair play and equality. However the concept of integration implies, well....integration, doesn't it? There is an upside though; if there is a new bank holiday for every one that exists in the cultures represented in the UK I'd vote for it. I may never have to work again.
