‘He has to go to the naughty centre’: Sassy five-year-old explains why Boris Johnson is a ‘bad Prime Minister’ because of ‘partygate’ to her grandparents in hilarious video
- Layla Somani, five, filmed explaining Partygate to her grandparents in Leicester
- Said Prime Minister Boris Johnson has ‘been naughty’ and needs to say sorry
- Video went viral on social media and now people want Layla to run for PM
This sassy schoolgirl, five, appears to understand Covid rules better than the Prime Minister – as she was caught on camera explaining why he’d been ‘naughty’ to attend the alleged Downing Street party.
Little Layla Somani, from Leicester, Leicestershire, had been watching the news while having breakfast last week before taking it upon herself to explain the pressing political situation to grandparents Kanti Somani, 76, and Kusun Somani, 73.
Her mum Devina Somani, 37, and dad Nick Somani, 41, caught her hilariously detailed monologue on camera and shared it online, where social media users hailed her a ‘future PM’.
Boris Johnson apologised for attending the party last week, saying he believed at the time it was a ‘work event.’

In the funny clip, eloquent Layla explains: ‘Boris Johnson told everyone to stay at home, but in lockdown he just went down to a party, in the lockdown.
‘He’s been naughty, so he had to go to the naughty centre to tell everyone he’s sorry for going to a party in lockdown.
‘Now he can’t be prime minister anymore and he can’t go back to his prime minister home, so he’s not prime minister anymore.
‘So, someone else is being prime minister and there will be a good prime minister, but Boris Johnson is not a prime minister anymore, he’s a bad prime minister.
Last week, the Prime Minister apologised for attending a party at Downing Street in May 2020. He said he believed this was a work event (pictured leaving Downing Street in December)
‘But, if he’s lucky, he can go back to his prime minister home and he can be a prime minister again. We’ll see tomorrow if he’s lucky.’
Now her mum Devina has explained that the staunch royalist has promised she’ll ‘definitely become prime minister’ – as the video has had more than 55,000 views and 1,645 reactions.
Devina said: ‘We couldn’t stop laughing. We couldn’t believe how much she’d picked up.
‘When she was explaining it we thought “oh my god”. We couldn’t believe she’d learnt all this stuff and that she was absorbing it so well.

Proud parents Nick and Davina, pictured with Layla and her little brother, said they can’t believe how much of the news Layla absorbs
‘It was a normal morning. She was having her breakfast and she’d been watching a bit of the news.
‘She went over to them and started explaining it. Nick said ‘hold on stop right there’ and started filming it.
‘She just started coming out with it. She said he had to leave his house and go to the naughty centre. It was even funnier.
‘It was amazing to capture the moment because some of these things she says you miss. She’s maybe a future politician.

Fans said Layla should run for Prime Minister. The five-year-old said she is ‘too little,’ but has not sworn off a political career for later in life
‘She’s absorbed that from the news herself. She was able to tell what’s right and wrong.’
Layla developed her interest in Boris Johnson and the Queen last year during a weekend in London with her family and since then has enjoyed watching news about them on TV.
Devina said: ‘She was very proud when people said ‘Layla to be future PM’. She said “I’m too little at the moment”.
‘She went “when I grow up I’ll definitely become prime minister”. Last year when we were able to go on holiday, we did one visit to London.
She has a great passion for the Queen so we took her to Buckingham Palace and we were saying about how Boris Johnson runs the country for the Queen.

Davina said Layla is very interested in history and politics, and added she believes her daughter could one day be in politics
‘We teach her certain things and from there, she’s had this thing for Boris Johnson and the Queen. She talks about 10 Downing Street because we showed her.’
After the clip of clever Layla went viral, Devina showed her the comments, prompting the intelligent little girl to announce ‘I’ll definitely become prime minister’.
Devina said: ‘Before she went to bed on Thursday, we showed her all the comments on social media.
‘We were thinking should we share with our friends and family so we did. We can’t believe the response we’ve had.’
Last week, Boris Johnson apologised in Parliament saying: ‘When I went into that garden just after six on May 20 2020, to thank groups of staff before going back into my office 25 minutes later to continue working, I believed implicitly that this was a work event.
‘With hindsight I should have sent everyone back inside. I should have found some other way to thank them.
‘I should have recognised that even if it could be said technically to fall within the guidance, there are millions and millions of people who simply would not see it that way, people who have suffered terribly, people who were forbidden from meeting loved ones at all inside or outside, and to them and to this house I offer my heartfelt apologies.’
