10-year-old girl scolds BBC interviewer: 'Maybe you weren't educated properly'
This is the moment a 10-year-old schoolgirl brusquely puts a veteran interviewer in his place with the withering line: "Maybe you weren't educated properly?"
Charlotte, 10, from Wirral in northern England, locked horns with the BBC's Andrew Neil in a debate about Britain's recently announced sugar tax.
Charlotte came to the Daily Politics show armed with statistics, and a ready rejoinder to accusations the sugar tax was a "nanny state" measure.
Asked if the tax was another example of the nanny state, Charlotte, replies: "Mr Neil, do you remember on January 31st 1983 when seat belts were made compulsory?'
"It wasn't a popular idea. People didn't like it. But do you know how many lives it saved a year?
"Three hundred lives per year because the government did something."
Neil then asks fellow young guest Henrietta what she thought.
"If it's saving lives and it's helping the NHS, then I think we should be told what to do," says Henrietta.
Andrew responds: "When I was your age and someone told me not to do something, that usually meant I tried to do it."
Then Charlotte strikes: "Well, maybe you weren't educated properly enough about health and wellbeing."
The stunned presenter, a former Sunday Times editor, then jokes: "Many people have said that."
