    Will you give up your public holidays?

    Post by Campbell Brodie on Mon 9 Apr 2012 - 17:52

    Each bank holiday costs the country £2.3billion, scrapping them would boost the economy by £19billion...

    Sleep??? You modern kids don't know the meaning of the word. During the war, I had to stay awake for weeks on end in the Russian convoys. I only blinked cos the Captain ordered me to.
