The general rule is that when politicians try to appear human, it totally backfires – and Theresa May has just proven she really is no exception.

In an interview with ITV, Mrs May explained that when she was a child, she had no brothers and sisters so she would have to do things on her own.

She was asked about the naughtiest thing she ever did as a kid. This was her moment to show she was a real human, flawed just like the rest of us.

So, she confessed her naughtiest act.

Was it steal a penny sweet, dabble in a bit of graffiti, or maybe have a cheeky cigarette behind the bike shed?

Not quite, no.

May responded:

Oh, goodness me. Well, I suppose… gosh. Do you know, I’m not quite sure. I can’t think what the naughtiest thing…

Well, nobody is ever perfectly behaved, are they? I have to confess, when me and my friend, sort of, used to run through the fields of wheat, the farmers weren’t too pleased about that.

And people, of course, are seizing the opportunity:

Wow.
