Michelle Obama’s five-day Spanish holiday – picked up by the American taxpayer – could easily top £250,000 (that’s £50,000 a day)

You’re welcome, Mr. and Mrs. Obama. Every dime spent keeping you two away from Washington DC where you cook up more bad ideas to help keep the boot on the neck of America is a dime well spent. Why not take a trip around the world in a balloon with Barack and the girls next, followed by a sled dog trip to the north pole bringing Reid and Pelosi and the whole lame duck Democrat caucus with you for that one?
