Chancellor boasts of A-level maths but dodges question on eight times table from seven-year-old boy.

Chancellor George Osborne has a rule not to answer maths questions, apparently.

As chancellor of the exchequer, George Osborne has faced many a tough question relating to figures but that did not stop him dodging a simple multiplication put to him by a seven-year-old. Sam Raddings asked Osborne what seven times eight equals but the chancellor refused to answer.

“I’ve made it a rule in life not to answer a load of maths questions,” he said. Luckily, Sam, who was part of a child panel interviewing Osborne on Sky News, stepped in to point out that the answer was 56. Osborne’s refusal came just after he had told Sam in response to a question on whether he was good at maths: “Well, I did maths A-level so I have been tested at school.”
