LONDON – Following this week’s announcement of the resignation of short-lived UK Prime Minister Liz Truss after only 45 days in office, Ryanair have now trolled Boris Johnson who is presently returning to the UK from the Caribbean.

Cutting short a holiday in the Dominican Republic, Boris Johnston is now aboard a British Airways flight from Punta Cana to London Gatwick airport via Antigua.

The flight operating as BA 2156 is currently estimated to arrive at approximately 10.00am BST this morning, and brings the seemingly hopeful former Prime Minister back to a government in apparent freefall.

Ryanair were quick to capitalise on the fall of Liz Truss this week – posting a series of wry references to her short-lived career in the lead role via their social media pages. AviationSource reported the postings by the often-controversial Irish airline earlier this week.

Ryanair were not backward in making their position clear on the former Prime Minister either, offering up a tweet saying that they were NOT helping Johnson back home, as people speculated as to how he might be returning.

Following speculation that Johnson may throw his hat in the ring as a contender for the PM position, the man who left the role in disgrace hastily curtailed his holiday, returning with wife Carrie and their children Wilf and Romy.

The Guardian has reported that the family had stayed at the Casa de Campo luxury golf resort. The resort has previously hosted celebrity guests which are said to have included Bill and Hillary Clinton, Jennifer Lopez, Jay-Z and Beyoncé.

Images surfacing on social media appear to show Boris Johnson in a business suit, taking up a seat in economy class aboard the returning British Airways flight.

Sky News reporter Mark Stone is also on the returning British Airways flight, and has reported that Boris Johnson’s appearance on the flight was met by some booing during the boarding.

Johnson will return to a Conservative party in division and disarray, as voting for a potential replacement for Truss continues in haste. It is uncertain at this stage whether Johnson will gain the 100 votes needed to contend for the PM role. He has not formally stated that he intends to re-contend for the leadership.
