British PM David Cameron holidays in Lanzarote for third Easter on the trot
thinkSPAIN , Friday, March 18, 2016

BRITISH prime minister David Cameron has booked to go to Lanzarote for his Easter break, sources close to the family say.

This will be the third year running the UK Conservative leader has chosen the Canarian island for Britain's longest bank holiday weekend, and most of his other foreign vacations have been in Spain in the past few years.

He was caught on camera carrying a surfboard on a Lanzarote beach in 2014 (pictured) and is due back there this coming week with his wife Samantha and their three children, Nancy, Florence and Arthur.

This year, however, he may have to spend his Easter sunshine trip dodging British nationals living on the island, or with holiday homes there, pestering him to tell them what his plans for them are if he loses the referendum and is forced to honour a 'Brexit'.

He may also get mobbed by long-term expats in Lanzarote wanting to know whether he plans to scrap the 15-year limit on voting in UK general elections, which has effectively disenfranchised an estimated half a million Brits from casting their ballot in the EU in/out referendum.

And it could be the last Easter trip where Cameron and his family get to sail past the EU border officers with a cursory flash of his passport rather than standing for hours in the 'other nationalities' queue and filling in a landing card.

Whatever happens, Cameron is probably determined to get as much relaxation and switching-off as possible in Lanzarote this Easter, given the unhappy tasks that await him on his return ahead of the referendum on June 23.
