Elections are always on Thursdays in the UK. How can they have it on a Monday?
Traditionally they are always on a Thursday, but this is not written into law.

Thursdays were chosen because way back when somebody guessed you would get the highest turnout on a Thursday.

Dominic Cummings et al would prefer a lower turnout.

Iíd think Sunday would actually provide the largest turnout.

So why donít they have the second Referendum on Sunday and the election the following Thursday.
