STILL ALL IN IT TOGETHER? pounds 10k-a-week holiday villa for PM and Sam.


RELAXING on a luxury holiday, David Cameron bravely soldiers on despite Britain's economic crisis.

The sockless PM is pictured enjoying a coffee with wife Samantha at a cafe in Montevarchi near Siena, Italy, after splashing out on a luxury pounds 9,700-a-week villa for their sunshine break.

And with George Osborne and Nick Clegg also sunning themselves abroad, Foreign Secretary William hague has been left running the country.

Labour MP John Mann said: "It seems we are not all in this together after all."

Mr Cameron paid pounds 5,800 as his share to stay a fortnight in an 18th-century villa on the Petrolo estate in Tuscany with friends.

The 15-bedroomed villa comes complete with swimming pool, tennis court, billiards room, three fishing lakes, a gardener, maid service and a team of cooks.

Previous guests include model Claudia Schiffer, film director Dennis Quaid, actor Jason Flemyng and TV chef Jamie Oliver.

It is the Camerons' third foreign holiday in four months after stays in Ibiza and Granada. They are also said to be planning a more modest trip to Cornwall.

Chancellor Osborne flew out on Friday to join wife Frances and their children, Luke, 10, and Liberty, eight, at Los Angeles' posh Mr C's hotel, where rooms cost up to pounds 1,000 a night.

Deputy PM Clegg is in Olmedo, Spain, with his Spanish wife Mirian and three sons, Antonio, Alberto and Miguel.

Two weeks ago Mr Clegg said: "I fear we are on the brink of another financial crisis."
