One thing that we've probably learned from the last week or so is that Boris Johnson shouldn't be put in front of a camera if he hasn't already prepared for what is going to happen.

Whether it is super awkward interviews on BBC Breakfast or getting heckled by members of flood-stricken communities, the prime minister has had a torrid time whenever cameras have been rolling.

Surely then a visit to a primary school in the south-west wouldn't provide the media with another embarrassing moment for the PM? Sadly for Johnson, the answer is no.

When sitting down with teachers, children at West Monkton Primary School, as well as the local Tory MP, Rebecca Pow, Johnson was invited to take part in a rendition of the nursery rhyme 'The Wheels on the Bus.'

Now we are not going to speculate as to whether Johnson knows the word to this song or not but he clearly wasn't too enthusiastic about this scenario as he put about as much effort into this as he did when mopping up floodwater.

As you can imagine the reactions to this completely surreal moment have been vast and hilarious.

All we can say is that this is very disappointing to see from someone that claims to be so fond of buses.
