Why does not England have a public holiday on its patron saint's day?


Why should it? After all, Scotland and Wales don't. Why do we all need to copy the Irish?

What is Scotland on there? St Andrew's Day is by now officially a bank holiday in Scotland, but it isn't treated as one - banks, for instance, are not closed.

Why go to the trouble of creating an additional bank holiday if it isn't really one?
