PRIME MINISTERS FOURTH HOLIDAY THIS YEAR – Looking for a cushy job that pays extremely well, has an outstanding pension scheme, guaranteed employment on completion of term, almost no work involved and multiple holidays per year? Then you need to become the Prime Minister of Britain.
Yes that duly elected Prime Minister of ours, David Cameron, is on his FOURTH holiday while the rest of us would be lucky if we get a chance at one due to the increasing austerity measures imposed upon us.
Let’s recap on David Cameron’s travels for 2013…
May – Jetted off to Ibiza with his wife for a few days break over the Whitsun Bank Holiday. They didn’t hold back on the expense either as they splashed out £11,000 on the rental of a luxury villa.
July – Yes less than two months later Cameron obviously needed another break. I guess the old saying ‘How wonderful it is to do nothing and then relax afterwards’ really is true. This time it was the official summer break which entailed a two week trip to Portugal.
August – Poor old David Cameron; could quite muster the strength to last more than a month before needing a little R and R, so off Cameron jets to the Scottish islands for a long weekend with family and friends; which involved staying at his wife’s stepfather’s estate in total luxury.
August – Yes that’s right Cameron couldn’t even make it through two weeks at work without having to take another break. It’s tough at the top no doubt but it’s made much easier when you can get away and this time from Scotland to Cornwall.
I wonder how all this travel is affecting David Cameron’s bad back. Yes, David Cameron has been complaining of a bad back in which he has to have pain medication injected into his spine.
Don’t worry, the injections are not administered to allow him to carry on working for the money that the taxpayer provides but rather not to prevent him from engaging in Deer Hunting; a favourite pastime of David Cameron’s.
In Cameron’s defence he told reporters that he is still effectively in charge of the UK’s affairs and that he checks his Blackberry phone constantly in order to keep abreast of the situation.
I know you’re probably asking the question what David Cameron does exactly. The answer to that, considering that he appears to be constantly on holiday is ‘not an awful lot’.
With Brussels firmly in control Cameron can sit back sipping Pim’s and watch the world go by and when we do finally get right of this wet in the 2015 General Election I’m afraid that the taxpayer will still end up paying his bloated salary for he, along with all the other incompetent fools that have gone before him, will end up dictating to us from the European Parliament.
Do you think Cameron should be allowed so many holidays a year whilst the rest of the country is drowning in austerity measures? Please leave your comments below.
