Boris Johnson is currently believed to be enjoying a break in the world-famous, iconic jet set resort of Marbella on the Costa del Sol. His wife Carrie, pregnant with their second child, and their 17-month-old son Wilf are of course with him on this family outing, according to a dailymail.co.uk.
It is not known where they are staying exactly, but it is understood that they are spending a week in a private villa. With temperatures yesterday, Saturday, October 9, at around a very comfortable 24C (75F), the Prime Minister will surely be praying that he can eventually enjoy what will be his first undisturbed holiday since the start of the pandemic.
With the House of Commons currently in recess for another week following the Conservative Party Conference, Boris and his family should have time to relax, unwind, and enjoy the beauty of their Spanish surroundings.
A report from his office claimed the PM was totally exhausted after all the events in recent months, but it is expected that his critics will still round on him for exiting the country while there is the fuel crisis, a shortage of food supplies in supermarkets, increasing coronavirus numbers, and skyrocketing energy prices.
His supporters will argue that in fairness to Mr Johnson, his last proper break was when he went to the Caribbean island of Mustique in January 2020. Since that trip, he has contracted coronavirus, got divorced, remarried, had a baby, lost his mother, and had to handle the worst crisis to hit Britain since World War II.
Marbella and its surrounding areas have always been a popular haunt of celebrities, sports stars, and politicians. Compared to the Caribbean, Boris is only 2.5 hours away from London should any emergency crop up, but for now, he had better make the most of a battery-charging break on the stunning Costa del Sol.
