As is looking increasingly likely at this time, if Liz Truss becomes prime minister the chances are she’ll do as many sit down interviews with journalists as Boris Johnson did. In other words, naff all.
So it was good to see these kids in Peterborough grab their opportunity with both hands when the wannabe PM stopped by for a chat.
The exchange went viral because, well, best have a watch for yourself.

Children in Peterborough to Liz Truss:
“This is so awkward”
“Where’s Boris Johnson? We hate him”
“When are they going to kick him out?”

This is one of the best things I have ever seen. When even the kids hate the government, you know you’re fucked. pic.twitter.com/MDFHzDbtGN

Why is it only the children in this country who’re now allowed to be honest and say what they’re thinking? pic.twitter.com/mIOt437vH2

Then she spent an hour looking for the exit before a five year old helped her out #LizLost
