The PM plays it safe with this year's holiday photo. 

Theresa May has just been through the moment feared most by prime ministers: the summer holiday pictures.

The verdict on this year’s edition is that it is, well, a bit boring.

The pole-wielding, backpack-wearing Mays from their 2016 Alpine trek have been replaced by the couple on a gentle stroll through a town in northern Italy. 

There were no fish markets so beloved by David Cameron on his summer holidays. 

 

 

Nor a cameo from Silvio Berlusconi, who popped up with Tony Blair and clan in 2004. 

 

 

According to Cameron’s former communications director Craig Oliver, the summer holiday is a stressful time for the Downing Street spin team – so they might well settle for a bit of commentary on the cost of her dress.
