With the current political climate, many Londoners are looking for answers and some are even calling for a new Prime Minister.
Enter a classroom full of six-year-olds who seem to have the perfect solution to the UK’s political problems.
A teacher in London asked his class who they thought should replace Boris Johnson and run the country.
The result? Some hilarious and some, frankly, disturbing reactions from today’s youth.

Each week, a London teacher asks the children a question to see what they think about pressing issues.
The weekly thread has garnered George Pointon over 130,000 Twitter followers.
This week (January 14), George posed the question, “Who should be the next Prime Minister?”
The six-year-olds had some hilarious ideas, including a Marvel character, a dead historical figure, and a YouTuber.
One kid named Jack said The Hulk would make a great leader because he could “knock bad people away”.
Another said YouTuber, boxer and rapper KSI would be a great replacement for Boris.
However, George commented that he would be “massively underqualified” and added: “But so is the current man.”
A rather sweet reply came from Ravi. He just said the next prime minister should be, “Someone nice.”
One Twitter user replied, “Ravi gives the answer we all want.”
Lola had a different idea – she felt that the ideal leader is a man who has been dead for almost 500 years and beheaded two of his wives.
That’s right, Lola thought Henry VIII would make a great Prime Minister and was devastated to find out that he had indeed died.
Zahra gave the hilarious response of “Big Ben”.
Yes, keeping track of time would be incredible, but intimate objects generally do not have the power to rule the nation.
Finally, a very sweet reply came from the power couple in the class, Rory and Susanna, who both suggested each other’s names as future leaders.
However, teacher George made the very astute comment: “Susanna is a smart girl, but I’ve seen her try to cut her own hair”, so maybe not the best prime minister.
Other answers were Kung Fu Panda and Donald Trump
