Nor had I, but if you are running the country, you, or at least your civil
servants, ought to know about the impact of a decision on all the major
religions practised in it.


But given that he has only been PM for a short time, its not surprising
that there are a few glitches like that with his advisors or that they
havent
worked out which civil servant is the one to ask about election dates.

After a bit of Googling, it appears that it's only the first day

Not quite. If you read the link, it's the first two days when work is
forbidden, and that's sundown on the 13th to nightfall on the 15th.
Moving the dates leaves about three hours of voting time on the
15th.


Is voting 'work'?


It is when flicking a light switch is work.

I wish I got paid for it.


That can be arranged.

An insult implies intent. The problem with Boris is that he seems to do
these things unconsciously, like his comments about Muslim women wearing
the burka looking like letterboxes. It shows either a lack of awareness
of his responsibilities as PM to set an example to others or that he
thinks that casual racism is the right sort of example to set.

With Brian recently describing Jewish culture as “nonsense”, it’s no
surprise to see him quite comfortable with Boris’ casual racism.

Is Juadaism a major religion these days in Britain?



Religion in Great Britain (2011 census)
* Christianity (59.5%)
* No religion (25.7%)
* Islam (4.4%)
* Hinduism (1.3%)
* Sikhism (0.7%)
* Judaism (0.4%)
* Buddhism (0.4%)
* Other religions (0.4%)
* Not stated (7.2%)


That makes it the fifth most followed religion in the UK, which is
probably a good reason to put it among the major religions.

However, unlike the number of Christians, it is most likely an accurate
estimate of those actively following Judaism. On the basis of active
followers, according to a recent survey, there are about 15 active
followers of Christianity to every follower of Judaism. That would make
it even more of a major religion in the UK.

With only about 6% of the UK population actively Christian, you could
ask, if we ignore Jewish festivals because of the numbers, why do we
observe Christmas and Easter as a nation?

Shocking anti-semitism from Brian, as per, but what else would we expect
from a dedicated Faragist?
