May Day 2011 may be the last one with official character in England and Wales

The reactionary quasi-fascist Tory-Liberal government is planning to dismantle this historical holiday of the Working Class, possibly the only secular holiday in the UK and so many other countries, and replace it by the superstitious sectarian celebrations of St. George, the infamous mythical dragon-slayer imitator of Apollo, in England and a quite unknown St. David (who's that guy?) in Wales. 

Not even Pinochet's intimate friend, Mrs. Thatcher, who waged a merciless war against the working class, dared to go so far.
