The nation is playing a game of “Where’s Wally” tonight after critics blasted the Prime Minister for going on holiday during the latest Government crisis.
As the biggest education failure in a generation raged across England, parents, teachers and pupils were fuming that Boris Johnson was nowhere to be seen.
He has swerved the spotlight as the latest shambles engulfed his cabinet and threatened a collapse in public confidence.
Ministers are under fire over a host of nationwide problems, including their mishandling of the coronavirus crisis, sticking the blame on now-axed Public Health England, and the humiliating U-turn over grades for A-Level and GCSE students.
Labour’s shadow health minister Justin Madders told the Daily Star: “Where’s Wally? More like where is THE wally?”
Meanwhile fury swept social media with scores of people demanding to know “Where is Boris?” as calls continue to grow for Education Secretary Gavin Williamson and Health Secretary Matt Hancock to pay the price for their bungling of major crises.
One joked on Twitter: “When the going gets tough, the tough get going. Not so Johnson. When the going gets tough, he hides in fridges, doesn’t set foot outdoors.”
One person has even mocked-up a new game for kids on their summer holidays.

Alongside a Where’s Wally-style drawing, one joker said: “Combat the exam result blues with this special Covid-19 holiday edition of Where’s Boris?”
The PM is currently on a break in the Scottish highlands with his fiancée Carrie Symonds and newborn son Wilfred.
