PM's fourth holiday to MP's 'third Cornish home'
4:11pm Friday 23rd August 2013 in Skipper
Words can barely express the relief I feel now that Prime Minister David Cameron has arrived in Cornwall for his fourth holiday of the year.
With holidays in Portugal and Ibiza already in the bag, and a third holiday on the west coast of Scotland only last week, I was beginning to fear that Dave’s blessing would not be bestowed upon us this year.
I am worried, though, that his bad back might prevent him from leaving the beach at Polzeath. Is it not about time he added Falmouth’s Gyllyngvase to his itinerary? And I’m sure that with one wave of his magic wand he could quickly sort out all of our little local difficulties, such as public toilets which can now be used only by those who can afford them.
It’s a relief to know that Mr Cameron will not face this sort of inconvenience himself, because he and his family will stay near Padstow with George Hollingbery, the Conservative MP for Meon Valley, Hampshire, who recently bought his third property in the area.
There are those who think the Prime Minister spends far too much time on holiday, and not enough time running the country. I beg to differ.
Dave’s “no hands on the tiller” approach has produced signs of a recovery in the housing market, another fine crop of A-level results and a truly memorable Falmouth Week. What more could we want?
The Prime Minister told the BBC he always remained effectively in charge of the country and was ready to “spring into action”no matter where he was in the world.
"I check my BlackBerry, I contact the office but I can do that and say right it's holiday time, it's children time, and have some time like that," he said.
It’s nice to have someone normal in charge. Because we are all in this together.
