Boris Johnson faces backlash after jetting off on luxury break to Costa del Sol


BORIS Johnson faces a backlash after jetting off on a luxury break to the Costa del Sol.

The PM is staying in Marbella with wife Carrie and 17-month-old son Wilf.

Boris Johnson and Carrie have flown to Marbella for a holiday

It’s their first trip since Mustique in January last year.

But they’re likely to be panned for going amid the fuel crisis, ­supply chain shortages and ­surging energy prices.

Sources said the PM is “exhausted”.

He is also facing a Cabinet backlash over the gas-fuelled cost of living crisis.

Ministers are worried over how rising wages could further increase inflation without boosting productivity.

One was scathing about the lack of a focused strategy. Another added: “It’s all fur coat and no trousers — and there’s a chill wind approaching.”

Gas prices, already at record levels, are likely to shoot up in April and new eco-levies are coming in.

Meanwhile, Environment Minister George Eustice signalled visa tweaks could be made to fill labour gaps that are causing supply chain problems.
