I tend to spend most bank holidays in the Canaries, and it hasn't rained there on those times for the past 5 years, so my answer is "No".

The shocking truth is that in every working week 20% of rain falls on Mondays and Fridays.

Why should this disgraceful statistic not apply if the Monday is a Bank Holiday?

I think mandatory public holidays should be move to a Friday. I think more people would enjoy a long weekend that way around

    Every day of the week should be treated the same and a full-time job might just be defined as 10000 hours a year, split up however you want. Everyone should be paid a multiplier for working during hours of darkness (and yes that means more in winter).

    My employer is flexible with staff swapping shifts so I generally try to work Sat,Sun,Mon / Wed-Thu, which means 2 days of driving to work in no traffic. It is busier with fewer people around, but things get done more quickly as there are fewer distractions. I also get paid double if anyone rostered for Sunday is on annual leave or sick and I volunteer to "come in". Then I spend 3 months in Australia from November-Feburary.

      'Then I spend 3 months in Australia from November-Feburary.'

      That seems a rather harsh punishment for asking for flexi time
