Boris Johnson joined schoolchildren to help build a ‘bug hotel’ and was recorded asking them whether it comes with a minibar.
The Prime Minister was visiting Crumlin Integrated Primary School, in county Antrim, Northern Ireland, when he got involved with a range of environmental activities, including planting ancient acorns, and a cherry tree.
He helped pupils in year 3 build a bug hotel and asked them whether it would come with a minibar, before planting a tree alongside year 7 students.
During his visit, Mr Johnson sat alongside the seven-year-old pupils to plant ancient acorns and build the bug hotel.
While constructing it, he said to the children: ‘This is the reception to the bug hotel.
‘Do they get…do they get a minibar?’
Without receiving a response, he adds: ‘Do they get a minibar in the bug hotel?’
Later in the clip, Mr Johnson sounds astonished when he asks another pupil: ‘You’ve adopted a gorilla?’
