As many of you will be aware, this weekend is the Easter Bank Holiday weekend in the UK, meaning that Friday and Monday are public holidays. In keeping with Morning Brew Tradition (and my like for the occasional lie-in in the morning) there will be no edition of the Morning Brew on Friday or Monday, with the Brew returning on Tuesday with what usually ends up being one of the biggest posts of the year.
