Theresa May reveals the ‘naughtiest thing’ she’s ever doneOn June 6, 2017 by Lucius
Sometimes it’s the more offbeat questions that prompt the best answers from politicians.
They’re normally so well coached on the typical queries that they’re quite happy to reel off stock answers, but when they’re presented with something unexpected they can occasionally come out with a gem or two.
Not that we’d call this a gem, exactly, but… well, just watch it:
That clip was from a recent interview with Julie Etchingham for ITV’s Tonight show.
Here’s the full transcript of May’s response to the question about the “naughtiest thing” she’s ever done:
“Oh goodness me. Well, I suppose… Gosh. Do you know I’m not quite sure. Nobody is ever perfectly behaved, are they?
I have to confess when me and my friends used to run through the fields of wheat the farmers weren’t too pleased about that.”
Judging by the responses on Twitter, people weren’t too impressed:
Plenty of people came in with their own suggestions for how she should have answered:
Cutting 20,000 police, 1300 armed police, 5% of MI5, lying to public about it, suppressing report on funding terrorists and report on NHS

Mainly, though, people just saw the whole thing as a bit of a joke:
Running through a field of wheat, my god, hasn’t she lived😀
