Chillaxing Camerons in Cornwall : 'Phenomenally bad back' do Aug 20, 2013 14:06:14 GMT

The Prime Minister is now on his fourth holiday this year but maintains he is still running the country.
After breaks in Ibiza, Portugal and the Scottish island of Jura in 2013, the Camerons are now in a Cornish resort before they head back to Downing Street.
This week the Prime Minister revealed he has injured his back, forcing him to cancel plans to hunt deer in Scotland, and today he walked gingerly through Polzeath with his wife Samantha.
Chillaxing nicely : Prime Minister David Cameron and his wife Samantha sit on a bench outside a cafe overlooking the beach at Polzeath during their fourth holiday this year
'Departure lounge Dave' : The couple shared a drink overlooking Polzeath beach in in North Cornwall, where they are with their three children
Making his point : The PM says something to his, which made her grin, as they sat on a bench for photographers
Heading back : The Pm and Samantha stroll away, but his bad back meant that he appeared to walk away a little gingerly
They had stopped for a drink at a cafe overlooking the beach before heading back to their three children. As they strolled away Mrs Cameron's right-ankle tattoo was in full view.
But despite years of ribbing about his holiday outfits, David Cameron again plumped for his blue polo shirt, matching shorts and flip-flops.
Mr Cameron has remained in the UK for his August ‘stay-cation’ but it has been hampered by his 'protruding disc'.
While on Jura this week, where he was staying on a 20,000-acre estate owned by his wife Samantha’s stepfather Lord Astor, he said his ‘phenomenally bad back’ had been a ‘bore’. It has required a pain-killing injection.

It has stopped him from doing his favorite activities including stalking deer – which involves crawling through the heather rifle in hand – and water-skiing.
Mr Cameron, who was once credited with killing two stags with one shot, denied that he had given up deer-stalking to placate animal rights groups, calling it ‘probably one of the most defendable’ field sports.
With the Tories improving in the polls, the holidays have been coming thick and fast in 2013.
At the end of May Mr Cameron and his family took an easyJet flight for a week-long holiday in Ibiza where Mrs Cameron is said to enjoy the nightclub music scene.
They stayed in a villa which comes with staff and can be rented for up to £11,000 a week.
Then last month the holiday tour of Europe moved on to another popular hotspot, the Algarve region of Portugal.

They took another budget airline flight to Faro and enjoyed two weeks in Aljezur. After some time in Jura, they headed south to Cornwall.
It is not the first time the Camerons have visited Polzeath. Last year they braved blustery showers to have lunch at a beach-front cafe where they shared a bowl of local mussels on the terrace during a gap in the rain.
The couple have visited Cornwall for the last few summers and it was where their younger daughter Florence was born in 2010.
Mr Cameron maintains he is ‘effectively in charge’ of the UK while on holiday.
‘I always think that you’ve got to be in contact,’ he said.
‘I check my BlackBerry, I contact the office, but I can do that and then say, “It’s holiday time, it’s children time”.’
There's only one thing wrong with 'Camermoron's' back - it's made of fcking glass!! - Fx
