Say "No" to an Idea from the Past Century

Minister in 'British day blunder'

from Andrew Nutt's blog....

Minister Liam Byrne has been accused by the SNP of a "glaring gaffe" over his choice of date for a "British day".
Mr Byrne was due to call for the "August bank holiday" to be made a weekend of national celebration in a speech to a New Labour think tank.
But he back-pedalled after the SNP pointed out that the August holiday is on a different date in Scotland to what it is in England and Wales.
Mr Byrne said he had just been trying to "get the debate started".
