BORIS JOHNSON was mercilessly mocked by Remainer Anna Soubry who ridiculed his decision to “swan off” on a holiday to Marbella amid multiple growing crises in Britain.
The furious former MP told Sky News it was wrong of Mr Johnson to jet off on holiday amid fuel shortages and supply chain chaos in Britain but claimed she was not surprised given he is “the most notoriously lazy prime minister” as Ms Soubry launched a scathing dismissal of him.
A furious Ms Soubry hammered: “He hasn’t gone for a couple of days!
“Now we know why he was so keen to finish that conference speech that he gave.
“He was thinking ‘I’ve got to get back, pack my bags and then I’m going off’.
“I’m sorry, he has a whole team of people running the country by and large because he is the most notoriously lazy prime minister!”
She went on to mock “oh poor old Boris, he’s tired” for taking a holiday to Marbella in the south of Spain.
The Remainer branded the idea the prime minister needs a holiday because of his tiredness as “for the birds” as she ruthlessly laid into Mr Johnson further.
Ms Soubry added: ”He has decided to swan off on his jolly’s and it is not acceptable! The timing couldn’t be worse!
“It’s like he doesn’t really care. He has got an 80 [seat]majority and he just thinks everything will be fine! It’s all alright!
She slammed: “No policy, no problems! Going to be great!”
Her comments come as it has been revealed Boris Johnson jetted off to Marbella with wife Carrie and son Wilfred following his speech at the Conservative party conference on Wednesday.
The decision has been met with furious criticism by Mr Johnson’s detractors but his supporters have said it is “reasonable” for the Prime Minister to be able to take a break.
Speaking to Times Radio, Business Secretary Kwasi Kwarteng said: “I believe he has gone away – I’m not sure where he’s gone but what I would say is I am in regular contact with him.”
“He’s also had a year-and-a-half in which he’s almost lost his life to COVID, his mother passed away very sadly two or three weeks ago…
“And he may have decided to take a short break.”
Mr Kwarteng insisted he was in “regular WhatsApp contact” with the prime minister.
