Six-year-old unwittingly becomes the ‘voice of a nation’

Lucy Howarth has become an internet sensation

A little girl has been hailed “the voice of a nation” in the UK after resting her head on her desk in boredom as she was read to by Prime Minister David Cameron.

It appears little Lucy Howarth, aged six, has heard enough from the PM, who dropped by the Sacred Heart Roman Catholic Primary School near Bolton, England during story time.

As this video reveals however, the reaction actually stemmed from a little bit of embarrassment after Lucy couldn’t remember a character in the story.

Social media was quick to pick up on her hilarious reaction, with wry Twitter commentators using the hashtag #LucyHowarth to bash the PM.
