Criticism of Boris Johnson’s trip to Spain

“In my opinion, this is not the time for a prime minister to be on vacation,” said the head of the steel company UK Steel, which has come under pressure due to high energy costs, Gareth Stace, on Monday.

Energy-intensive industries such as the steel sector have been demanding a signal of support from the government in London for days in vain in order to cope with the massive costs. The UK is particularly hard hit by the global rise in gas prices because of its low inventory levels. At the same time, an acute shortage of skilled workers is becoming increasingly noticeable in many areas. Because there are not enough truck drivers, for example, supermarket shelves remain empty and petrol stations are closed.
