David Cameron and Nick Clegg finally agree on something - MPs should not get a pay hike

The Prime Minister pretty much ruled out an East Anglian break this year for fear he would be accused of having too many holidays.

David Cameron will instead be going to flood-hit Cornwall for the fifth year in a row.

He came under fire last year for hitting a holiday tally of four by the summer, when he was snapped trying to answer to the age-old conundrum of how to change gracefully into a swimming costume while on the beach.

Questioned on whether he would come on holiday to the East he said: “Knowing the lobby (corp of political journalists) as I do, if I had too many summer holidays you would all be jumping on the ‘Prime Minister having too many summer holidays bandwagon’.”

There have been reporters in the Spanish press that he is taking his family on holiday to Lanzarote over Parliament’s Easter break, although he said yesterday he will be spending time with his in-laws.

A Downing Street spokesman said they never confirmed the PM’s movements for security reasons.
