Did you know that the UK’s statutory holiday entitlement is increasing to 24 days on 1st October, and then 28 days a year after that? Because I sure as hell didn’t. For the majority of people in the UK, that’s an extra eight days holiday every year. Another eight 3-day weekends, or almost two whole extra weeks off.
Of course, even at 28 days holiday per year, we’re still at the bottom of the pile in the EU, but that’s to be expected, really. It sounds as if we may be getting an extra bank holiday or two anyway, so it’s all good news.
Clearly I should buy shares in travel, leisure and holiday companies.
