In the UK Rememberance day is on the 11th day of the 11th month and 11am is a moment for 2 minutes s ...

Australia did the same thing for Anzac Day, move it to a Monday and make that the public holiday,easier for business and give people a long weekend.
Stopped that now.For good reason.The day and date has become sacred in Australia, no matter what day of the week it falls , that is Anzac Day.
Armistice was declared on the 11 November .That should be the commemorative day.

This is not about honouring the dead. This is about you making a political statement to further your own ambitions and interests, to exploit the memories of the dead while standing on their bones for your selfish means.
