    It's not the olden days anymore.

    So I don't understand why its necessary for shops to close on Sundays or have irregular opening times. And this is probably costing the global economies billions and trillions every year.

    It just seems like a waste of money to me.

    All I know is that Sunday is a day of rest, and that we don't work on Sundays because the bible says so. It's God's day of rest. What a load of make believe rubbish that is. We are mostly all progressive atheists nowadays.

    And if people do want a rest on Sunday, there are millions of unemployed people out there who would happily work all day on Sundays...

    Why the f does stuff close on Sundays?

    Exactly. Lots of students looking to pick up a few hours at weekends losing out on valuable money and experience. If its that big of a deal just make sure employers can't discriminate for people that won't work Sundays.

    The government is planning to relax the Sunday trading laws so many may open in the near future!

    And people don't want shops to close on Sunday because the 'Bible says so', but also because if shops open for longer, workers may be forced to work longer hours than they currently do on Sunday, which is not just a day of rest for Christians, but also for people with families or just a day to relax.

    You're doing a lot of guesswork, which is dangerous. Next time you might have an opinion on immigration or policies and use the same 'probably's and 'surely's to validate your invalid opinion.

    Yes, shops should be open normal times on Sunday and later on weekdays, just because it makes no sense to close when most people are finally off work, and there would be more jobs or more hours for those with part time jobs. But Sunday being sorta-kinda-when-it-suits-us religious is how it used to be, and you'll notice that one thing the British public despise and greatly fear more than a foreigner is change.

    Yep, I agree tbh.

    Just an out-of-date rule that's still around.

    I really don't know why Banks have to close on weekends... They are the worst!

    And as I said, there are millions of unemployed who can work on Sundays if other weekday workers need a rest.
