    While the United Kingdom is fighting the coronavirus pandemic, the head of the government is leading by example, isolating himself at a remote vacation spot, despite the scandal surrounding a controversial exam algorithm.

    British Prime Minister Johnson didn't interrupt his vacation despite the heated debated in Parliament over schools reopening and exam results chaos amid the pandemic. The PM was photographed by the Daily Mail during his "staycation" on the Scottish coast with his fiancée Carrie Symonds, their baby Wilfred, and their dog Dilyn.

    The pictures, taken by the tabloid, show Johnson wearing casual clothing, and a small three-bedroom cottage the PM has rented. There is also a canvas tent, set up in the yard near the cottage, with a direct view of the sea.

    The newspaper noted that the property costs "more than £1,500 [almost $2,000] a week to rent in the peak summer months", but decided not to reveal its location.
