Or vote on how long you can stay in office. Term limits will never happen as long as the people it affects are the ones to decide it.

It's amazing to me that a company can stay in business and remain competitive with their workforce having the option to not work and still get paid for up to 1/3 of the year.

Maybe UK workers are more principled than workers in the U.S.. if a company gave such benefits here, the vast majority of the workforce would be home "sick" enjoying a paid vacation for 1/3 of the year... I guarantee it.

That's pretty steep. That's about $7-$8 bucks a gallon. We are currently paying around $4 per gallon here so figure roughly half. I'll give up some vacation time for half price gas! Too-funny
As always, YMMV! You do not have to agree or disagree, I am not a professional so my mental meanderings are simply recollections of things from my own life.
