Boris Johnson has been relaxing in recent weeks as Prime Minister, enjoying Greece’s peaceful surroundings as millions of Britons struggle to survive the cost of living crisis.
Removal crews were spotted in Downing Street this week doing the hard work of cleaning Mr Johnson’s flat as he lay in a chair by the sea.
He and Carrie were spotted enjoying a meal at The Aegean restaurant in Karisto, famous for its spectacular sea views.
They were also seen shopping at a supermarket in the coastal town of Nea Makri on the same day.
Footage released by local media showed the couple buying what looks like wine and dips.
Mr Johnson was then seen packing the goods into plastic bags at checkouts before they were loaded into a black car and driven away.
It is not known where Mr Johnson is staying, but his father Stanley owns a villa in the village of Horto, a few hours away.
This is Mr Johnson’s second holiday this month.
He recently returned from a belated honeymoon at an eco-alpine resort in Slovenia.
Reports that the Prime Minister is having fun as the country reckon with another financial disaster have angered his critics.
His allies claimed he was “still working” while he was away, but the Prime Minister’s spokesman confirmed he was on official leave.
The spokesperson also added: “Under [prime ministers’] roles, they will obviously be kept informed of all urgent matters and will take decisions, in particular those (related to) national security for example.
Sir Keir Starmer, who has just returned from a holiday in Mallorca, called Mr Johnson a ‘lame duck’ on the cost of living, accusing him of treating his final months as ‘one big party’.
The Prime Minister’s official residence is already being prepared for the next Tory leader ahead of Mr Johnson’s departure on September 6.
Liz Truss is the favorite to replace him amid an ongoing contest with Rishi Sunak.
We don’t know what the movers were taking.
But No10 reportedly confirmed the Prime Minister could take anything he bought with his own money, suggesting he would be allowed to remove the infamous gold wallpaper installed during a lavish redecoration.
