Letter: Crowded holidays

Sir: Why do we bother with so many bank holidays? Britain is such a crowded little island, it simply cannot cope if we all take the day off and go looking for something to do.

Why not abolish them all and simply add the equivalent number of days to people's annual holiday entitlement? People should have the right to take Christmas and Easter off, should they be that way inclined.

I'm sure we'd all be a lot happier taking our days off when we wanted.
