Following on from the The Centre for Economics and Business Research recent research bank holidays cost the UK economy £19bn. Should we scrap bank holidays?

We already get one of the least amount of bank holidays in Europe as it is. Im not fond of Europe by any means, but instead of them telling us how straight bananas can be and stopping us deporting terrorists, i would glady take their holiday allowance in the name of European harmony.

But... weekends cost a lot more!
Obviously, we shouldn't scrap them. The suggestion is absurd. Working people need breaks - we're not machines!
