David Cameron and Nick Clegg have taken their respective families abroad for their summer holidays
David Cameron and Nick Clegg have joined the ranks of the hundreds of thousands of Britons who have packed their suitcases, dusted off their passports and sorted out their
travel insurance to jet off on their annual summer holidays.
The Prime Minister and his deputy have each departed the UK for their separate family getaways, with Mr Cameron saying politicians are human beings who "need to have holidays".
Number 10 has not released details of his family's holiday destination.
Meanwhile, Mr Clegg and his family will be spending their customary fortnight in Europe with his Spanish in-laws, leaving Foreign Secretary William Hague as the most senior minister remaining in the UK.
Mr Cameron, asked why he had chosen this moment to go abroad, said: "I am a great believer that politicians are human beings and they need to have holidays. I don't call it annual leave, I call it a holiday and I am looking forward to having a holiday."
He added: "If you don't think politicians ought to have holidays I think you need to have a serious think."
Those of us joining the politicians in jetting-off are reminded not to leave without first arranging cost-effective travel insurance from World First.
