A holiday for St George

The political party that guarantees to make St George's Day a Bank Holiday in England will probably get Mrs Rigby's vote.

The Scots have a day off for St Andrew, the Irish have a day off for St Patrick - being fair and equal, and the Welsh ought to have a day off for St David and of course the English should have a day off for St George.

So come on, who's going to make that guarantee?
