Royal Wedding on a Bank Holiday

Wow, fantastic, great if you are a pen-pusher, bureaucrat or diversity outreach worker because you get paid the same for doing less courtesy of your employer or the tax payer, but too bad if you happen to be an entrepreneur, trader, plumber, consultant, lawyer, accountant, GP or anybody else paid according to the number of billable hours they put in.  They can sit at home and pay for the privilege thmeselves, and to the unemployed and retired it doesn't make a blind bit of difference.

OK, I can understand why the Royal Family would like the wedding on a Bank Holiday for maximum PR exposure, but why not choose one of the many other Bank Holidays available next spring.  There are plenty of them.
