Well – they are human too you know. They also need a break from the nine to five (they probably put in longer hours than that). I would imagine that being a world leader is a pretty tiring job and when you go on vacation you just want to relax and try to escape the photographers….. or maybe not.
David Cameron enjoys Cornwall (as I grew up there I really approve his choice) Cheers Mate!
And isn’t this a typically English beach scene…… getting changed on the beach with just a towel for protection
Have you ever tried this little stunt. It is not as easy as it looks. One false move and there is a photo that will be on the front page of the Telegraph. I can sympathise with Mr Cameron. The beaches of Cornwall where I grew up were devoid of things like changing rooms. Just look –
Dear old Maggie Thatcher loved Cornwall too although unlike Mr Cameron the Iron Lady kept in character right down to the sensible shoes and rigid hairstyle
Some leaders have tried more exotic locations – Here Tony Blair looks distinctly uncomfortable on an elephant in Bali
But first prize has to go to Putin – his tough guy holiday snaps are famous
Much more realistic is Obama on holiday in Marth’s Vineyard. Note the sensible helmet….. shame about the crowd of security cycling behind although I guess being on Obama’s watch means that you keep fit at least.
So you see World Leaders are just like us – they go on vacation, get sand in their shorts, change on the beach and sometimes don’t look the best in their swimsuit. The difference between them and us is that if my husband took a photo like this of me and didn’t immediately delete I would kill him!
