David Cameron London, Feb 19 (ANI): British Prime Minister David Cameron made a surprise visit to his children’s school quiz - and got the politics question wrong.

The 44-year-old stunned parents when he showed up with wife Samantha, 39, for the annual quiz night at St Mary Abbots state school in west London, where Nancy and Arthur are pupils.

But after paying 8 pounds each to enter, he and Education Secretary Michael Gove, 43, could only manage a joint second place finish, reports the Daily Star.

Cameron showed he was an all-rounder as he answered questions on everything from Celebrity Big Brother and to the name of the Scarlet Pimpernel.

But Team Cameron came unstuck in the most unexpected way when a question on politics popped up.

They were asked who originally said: “Politics is the art of the possible.” They named former Tory Chancellor Rab Butler.

Despite their protests, the quizmaster said the correct answer was in fact Otto Von Bismarck.

It was then a close fight to the finish, with the winners having an Oxford don on their team. (ANI)
