However, the current pattern of public and bank holidays is well established and while an additional bank holiday may benefit some communities and sectors, the cost to the economy of an additional bank holiday is considerable.’
‘The principle is if someone is wanting to get out, we don’t want ‘do you lose your job or are you going to lose money?’ to be on the list of difficulties that that individual is facing,’ he told ABC radio.

In all, 9.1 million people enjoyed – or suffered – a tense encounter, with England falling behind to Esther Gonzalez’s opener, before levelling in the 84th minute through Ella Toone and then Georgia Stanway scoring the winner in extra time with a stunning strike.

ROTHERHAM, England, July 23 (Reuters) – Defender Eve Perisset scored a penalty in extra time to earn France a 1-0 win over holders the Netherlands and a place in the semi-finals of the Women’s European Championship for the first time on Saturday.
The broadcaster recorded a peak television audience of 7.6 million, during coverage on BBC One last night and there were also 1.5 million streams across BBC iPlayer and the BBC Sport website and app for the game.
France, whose last three appearances at the Euros ended in the quarter-finals, desperately searched for an opening to score as they kept surrounding the Dutch goal but it took Perisset’s spot kick in the 102nd minute to finally break the deadlock.
We’ve already spoken to the girls down the road in the campervan and they’re pretty bogged,’ festival attendee Ewan Roxborgh told the Splendour had its opening day cancelled on Friday after torrential rain turned the site into a marsh.
‘I was so frightened of being crushed in the bus crowd last night with peoples desperation escalating as the morning approached. No crowd control and no staff in sight! Thank god there were no casualties,’ she wrote.
‘We know last night’s journey home was sh*tty for some of you. It usually takes some time to get everyone out of the venue, we’re so sorry you had that experience at Splendour,’ the statement said on Sunday.
‘To say sh*tty for some of you, it’s usual, blame the bus company, then make out how amazing you are being on the phone all day is NOT owning your stuff Splendour!!! Such a lack of compassion for the people who are paying you who you literally left out in the mud, hungry and cold all night,’ an attendee responded to the latest apology.
‘Come on Splendour we deserve better than that and so do the bus drivers that were out there all night! More toilets and water isn’t going to fix a thing, especially those that couldn’t make it today because of getting home at a time when the rest of the state is waking up. What a slap in the face.’
‘While the music was incredible, your festival sucks. It was so poorly organised it appears you don’t actually care. Caring means resourcing the event adequately. You have to over resource so you have contingency to fall back on,’ another commented.
‘Our bus driver roped in two other busses that had to follow him because they didn’t know the bus route to tweed via the coast line. The bus drivers were absolute legends and after they dropped us off at 5am were on their way back after organisers were pleading to them over walkie talkies,’ he said.
Festivalgoers complained on Friday they wanted to leave the music festival because of the horrible conditions with one uploading a video to TikTok showing cars bogged in the mud accompanied by the soundtrack, ‘I wanna go home’.
‘We’ve had muddy events before, it’s not new to us, but I think the amount of rain that the Northern Rivers has received over the past six months has made it very difficult,’ she told ‘Everyone’s working as hard as they can to make this an experience they deserve, but it is very challenging conditions.’
About 50,000 revellers descended on the three-day festival near Byron Bay at the weekend – but the excitement quickly turned to frustration with the wild weather kicking off unlivable conditions and lengthy bus delays to leave the event.
‘We’ve been on the phones all day to pull in as many additional transport options as we can. There will likely be wait times again tonight, but we will have extra measures in place to support you including toilets and water.
