Boris Johnson ‘on leave’ as PM on second summer foreign trip

  • Boris Johnson is not likely to attend any events this week as he takes his second foreign vacation in less than a month.
  • Deputy Prime Minister Dominic Raab can deputise for him in any meetings arranged.
  • PM’s spokeswoman confirms that Mr Johnson is paying for his trip but would to disclose whether his security is taxpayer-funded.

 

Boris Johnson is not likely to attend any events this week as he takes his second foreign summer vacation in less than a month, according to Downing Street.

Mr Johnson was sighted in Greece over the weekend, as UK households grappled with the growing impact of the cost of living problem.

Despite warnings of higher inflation and the prospect of a recession later this year, the prime minister enjoyed a vacation earlier this month.

The PM’s official spokeswoman acknowledged to reporters that the PM is “on leave this week” and is not involved in day-to-day operations.

The spokeswoman indicated that Deputy Prime Minister Dominic Raab can deputise for him in any meetings that are currently arranged.

Mr Johnson, according to the spokeswoman, “will be contactable” and “kept informed of any critical situations.”

If necessary, the prime minister will make national security judgments and will lead on crucial decisions, they stressed.

The official spokesperson for the Prime Minister also confirmed that Mr Johnson is paying for his trip but would to disclose whether his security is taxpayer-funded.

When asked why Mr Johnson couldn’t wait until his replacement is named on September 5 before flying abroad, the PM’s spokeswoman said he couldn’t go into specifics but that “government business continues.”

“I can’t get into the decision around timings but he is on leave this week. He will be back this weekend,” he told reporters.

“Over recent weeks we’ve made a number of significant announcements and will continue to do so in the coming days.”

Removal vans have been observed outside Number 10.

According to The Times, Mr Johnson is on a week-long vacation in the country, with residents spotted him shopping alongside wife Carrie Johnson in a store in Nea Makri, a village east of Athens.

Former cabinet minister Brandon Lewis defended Mr Johnson’s travel earlier today.

“He’s probably in about his second week [of] holiday in the last year or so, certainly this year,” he told LBC.

“So while somebody is away, whether they are secretary of state or let alone the prime minister, they will be continuing to work.”

However, Labour has chastised the Prime Minister, accusing him of treating recent months as “one huge party.”

According to a party spokesperson: “On the evidence of the last six months, it appears that whether the prime minister is in power or on vacation, he has consistently failed to tackle the problem of the Tory cost of living crisis. Boris Johnson is having a great celebration while the rest of the country is struggling to pay their expenses.”

Analysts expect that average energy costs would jump to around £3,500 in October and more than £4,200 in January.

A research claims that bills will cost more than two months’ typical salaries next year unless the government intervenes.

The PM’s official spokesperson also ruled out any more government intervention to alleviate the burden of growing living costs until Mr Johnson’s replacement is named in early September.
