Sam Bowman suggests that we should celebrate the victory over the coronavirus with a double Bank Holiday:
June 21 is when Covid restrictions end. It's been a bleak, difficult year for everyone, and when restrictions end we need to celebrate.
The govt should make Monday June 21 and Tuesday June 22 *both* bank holidays, and make June 21 Victory over Covid Day. It's time to party.

There is a charm in celebrating that we can all go back to work by taking two days off.
However, there’s a trick being missed here. June 23 rd should be “Nigeday“. For that is the anniversary of that EU referendum.
You know, one’s a foul pandemic that crushed Europe and all we hold dear and the other was a virus. Worth celebrating victory over both.
