BORIS Johnson has boasted about the "peace and quiet" of his luxury honeymoon location as people in the UK suffer from the impact of the cost-of-living crisis. 

The caretaker Prime Minister has been sunning himself in Slovenia at five-star eco-hotel Vila Planinka, which has rooms with no electronic devices and wi-fi only available upon request. 

Room prices range from £242 to £541 per night for a corner deluxe apartment with a terrace to enjoy “views of idyllic nature”.

Speaking outside his hotel on Sunday, Johnson said: “We’ve climbed every available mountain, we’ve jumped in the lakes, we’ve been on bicycles.

“We’ve seen incredible things, huge caves and salamanders!"

According to The Times, the luxe villa's owners described the outgoing Prime Minister as "one of the most pleasant guests we have had". 

Johnson, who remains Prime Minister until September 5 when the new Conservative leader will be announced, has been widely criticised for the timing of the holiday which has seen him absent as huge announcements have been made about the state of the UK's economy

Last week, the Bank of England voted to raise interest rates to their highest level since 2008, with experts warning of a long period of recession.

His absence has been slammed by the SNP, who have demanded Johnson come out of hiding and recall the Westminster parliament to bring in measures that will tackle the growing cost-of-living crisis. 

Former Prime Minister Gordon Brown has also waded into the debate, warning he is seeing levels of poverty he "did not expect to see again".

The ex-Labour leader said that charities in his hometown of Fife are stocking up on duvets, sleeping bags, hot water bottles, and blankets "because they know that people can't afford to heat their homes anymore". 

Last month, Johnson opted to stay as caretaker Prime Minister until a new Tory leader was elected in September after resigning following a myriad of scandals. 

Liz Truss and Rishi Sunak are currently battling it out to take the reins, and neither contestant has shied away from promoting their Thatcherite vision for Britain. 

Truss vowed to immediately cut taxes and reverse the National Insurance rise “immediatey” if she becomes the next PM, which Sunak claimed will fuel inflation, which the BoE said is heading for 13% by the end of the year.
