Boris Johnson poised to declare extra bank holiday if England win Euro 2020
The Guardian says Boris Johnson is poised to call an extra bank holiday if England win Sunday’s football final at Wembley, as the government is being urged to publish safety data about previous Euro 2020 matches.
Asked whether he could declare Monday a bank holiday in the event of an England win, the prime minister said: “I think that would be tempting fate; let’s see what happens.”
His official spokesperson later added: “I don’t want to pre-empt the outcome of Sunday’s match. Clearly we want England to go all the way and win the final, and then we will set out our plans in due course.”
