Public Service?

Many of the local and national government services in my part of the world closed down from 22nd December until 2nd January, and many public sector workers (including MPs of course- we are locked out of Parliament by??a government that does not like us asking too many quesitons)??are not yet back at work.

I would be interested to know from people elsewhere in the country of their experiences with shut down public services over this long Christmas and New Year break.

    Not a problem to me, I think we tend to expect everything to shutdown until the 2nd, or later if new years day is Wednesday or later.

    The only problem I have is figuring out the bin collection days over Christmas. The note from the council on it never seems to make sense to me. 🙂

    My MP may have been locked out of Parliament, but she certainly isn't locked into replying to constituents' emails…
