10 May -- Sir Winston Churchill Day? A National Bank Holiday?

On this day in 1940, Winston Churchill became Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and started his long battle to save Western Civilisation. To quote from a speech delivered at his Nobel Prize ceremony: "Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to one man."

I would like to see 10 May officially declared "Sir Winston Churchill Day". Even better, the drearily named "Spring Bank Holiday" (which falls in May) could be renamed "Sir Winston Churchill Day". A national holiday to commemorate the Greatest Briton. That would be truly splendid.
