Boris Johnson quizzes children on general election and EC presidency

During a visit to a primary school, London Mayor Boris Johnson asked a group of schoolchildren if they think the Conservatives will win the next general election and if David Cameron is right to oppose former Jean-Claude Juncker becoming president of the European Commission.

The children cheered yes to the first question but were unsure about Mr Juncker’s appointment.

One teacher standing at the back of the classroom joked: “that’s the next lesson”.
