Cameron Heads To Lanzarote Holiday On Ryanair

527

With schools having broken up and Parliament in recess ahead of Easter, David Cameron has jetted off on holiday to Lanzarote.
The Prime Minister flew to the island with his wife Samantha yesterday on budget airline Ryanair, where he will spend six nights at a refurbished resort hotel.
The break in the Spanish island will provide welcome relief after a difficult week that saw the resignation of Culture Secretary Maria Miller over her expenses.
David Cameron, who tends to take at least one sunny European holiday a year, has in the past used Easyjet as well as Ryanair.
At a time of continued austerity, all party leaders, conscious of the impact of cuts, have made a point of using low cost airlines.
The Prime Minister has in the past spoken of the benefits of ‘chillaxing’ having also confessed to using computer games and running to relax.
The Sunday Times reports that this Easter break will be spent at a yoga retreat, which charges £1,000 a week for two and combines the traditional style of the island with Moroccan and Indonesian influences.
Lanzarote has a population of 130,000 and is a key market for British tourism with over half a million having visited the island last year according to the Canary Islands Statistics Institute.
The Prime Minister faces a full in-tray when he returns however, with the State Opening of Parliament and local and European elections scheduled for May.
