I know what you did last Easter

A non-scientific survey of "The Stranded" from my own extended circle brought a wry smile. It revealed a high proportion of senior medics and teachers - the self declared 'overworked' (and well paid), in other words.

I can't help but think that had there not been an election campaign on, all leave cancelled, half the MPs in the country would have been caught, er, out of it.

The exotic locations of our publicly funded hard working families would have provided a rich seam of scorn for the papers. Much worse than this.

Headlines like "Having a Lava-ly Time" being used.

After the expenses and pay scandals, lucky for them perhaps that they couldn't go. Who knows what they'd have been photographed doing.
