EVERYONE deserves a summer holiday. But not if you’re mayor of Madrid, according to some.

Ex-judge Manuela Carmena has had to fend off attacks for the ‘crime’ of taking a break away from the cut and thrust of public office.

Her €4,000 a week trip to Zahara was split among a party of eight. Hardly bacchanalian excess.

Whatsmore, the 71-year-old leader has been elected on a platform pledging to build new homes and has scrapped eviction orders to help ease Spain’s housing crisis.

If she delivers on these goals – and on a frugal 45,000 salary – who cares if she chooses to spend a week away with her pals?
