‘Only’ is the wrong term obviously there’s exceptions but JAS84 is correct to an extent as there’s many people who are off between Xmas and New Year, lots of offices, council buildings, factories etc who’d be open during half term are closed on the days inbetween Christmas & New Year.
Yes, those of us who normally work this week know how quiet the roads are, even more so than a school holiday.
Having said that, Breakfast finishing at 7:50 and having no regional bulletins is a mistake when as you have pointed out; some are back to work (calls centres, retail) considering GMB was on til 8:30 with its usual regional 3 bulletins.
Are they still the usual bulletins on at seemingly random times that might be on before you leave the house, might not
I'm sure people can do without their regional news for one day, are they that useful to someone who's going to work? The travel news is so broad in most regions its next to useless most days.
