Boris Johnson lounges in Greek restaurant as removal team clear out No 10

The Prime Minister is currently on his second holiday this month

Boris Johnson has spent the last few weeks relaxing as Prime Minister, enjoying the peaceful surroundings of Greece while millions of Britons figure out how to survive the cost of living crisis.

Removal crews were seen in Downing Street this week doing the hard work of clearing out Mr Johnson’s flat as he reclined in a chair by the sea.

He and Carrie were spotted enjoying a meal at The Aegean restaurant in Karisto, known for its spectacular sea views.

They were also seen shopping for groceries at a supermarket in the coastal town of Nea Makri on the same day.

Footage released by local media showed the couple buying what appears to be wine and dip.

Johnson was then seen packing the items away in plastic bags at the till before they were loaded into a black car and driven off.

It is unclear where Mr Johnson lives, but his father Stanley owns a villa in the village of Horto – a few hours away.

Johnson has been accused of treating his last few months in office as “one big party”

This is the second holiday Mr Johnson has been on this month.

He recently returned from a belated honeymoon at an eco-alpine resort in Slovenia.

Reports that the prime minister is enjoying himself as the country braces for another economic disaster have angered his critics.

His allies have claimed he was “still working” while he was away, but the prime minister’s spokesman confirmed he is on official leave.

The spokesman also added: ‘By virtue of [prime ministers’] roles they will obviously be kept informed on all pressing issues and make decisions especially those (related to) national security for example.’

Sir Keir Starmer, who has just returned from a holiday in Majorca, called Mr Johnson a “lame duck” on the cost of living, accusing him of treating the past few months as “one big party”.

The Prime Minister’s official residence is already being prepared for the next Conservative leader before Johnson leaves on September 6.

Liz Truss is the frontrunner to replace him amid an ongoing competition with Rishi Sunak.

It is unclear what the movers took with them.

But No 10 reportedly confirmed the Prime Minister can take anything he bought with his own money, hinting he would be allowed to remove the infamous gold wallpaper installed during a lavish refurbishment.
