BORIS Johnson is back on vacation, shortly after returning from another break, as he enters his final weeks in Downing Street.

Johnson, who will step down from No. 10 on September 6, took a vacation earlier this month despite warnings of further inflation and the threat of a recession later this year.

Now the outgoing prime minister is said to be on a break, this time in Greece.

The Times newspaper reports that Johnson is spending a week’s holiday in the country, with locals seeing him shopping alongside his wife Carrie at a supermarket in Nea Makri, a town east of Athens.

On Monday, former cabinet minister Brandon Lewis defended Johnson, rejecting any suggestions he threw in the towel.

He told LBC: Even when you’re not in the Downing Street office, you’re working.

He added: He’s probably in his second week or so [of] holidays over the past year, certainly this year. Thus, while someone is absent, whether he is secretary of state or even less prime minister, he will continue to work.

I can assure you that it will always come through the inboxes, it will always deal with national security issues, if any. Being outside the country does not mean that the Prime Minister stops working.

Labor attacked the Prime Minister, accusing him of treating recent months as one big party.

A spokesman said: On the evidence of the past few months, it appears to make little difference whether the Prime Minister is in office or on vacation as he has still failed to rise to the challenge of the cost crisis of the lives of curators. It’s just one big party for Boris Johnson as the country struggles to pay its bills.

Downing Street later insisted the Prime Minister would be kept informed of any pressing issues while on vacation.

The Prime Minister’s official spokesman told reporters that Johnson had paid for his own vacation and would be kept informed of any urgent government business while he was away.

The Prime Minister is on vacation this week, he said.

As is the case with prime ministers, as you know from their role, they will obviously be kept informed of all pressing matters and will take decisions, especially those (related to) national security for example.

He added: If there were any urgent decisions that required PM input, of course he will participate. But the Deputy Prime Minister [Dominic Raab]is able to fill in for meetings if they arise, but as far as I know no such meetings are currently scheduled.

Asked if Boris Johnson’s vacation could have been delayed for a few weeks, his spokesman said: I can’t get into the timing decision, but he’s off this week. He will be back this weekend.
