You need to see Boris Johnson sing Ode To Joy in German


Boris Johnson has gone to extraordinary lengths to prove that he is as much of a "liberal cosmopolitan" as he claims to be.

During his most recent Brexit speech, he said that he can read books in French and Spanish and can also sing Ode To Joy in German - something which the reporters demanded he demonstrated.

True to his word, he belts out the first line of the song - and it's actually pretty impressive.

Johnson's comments - and singing - came in a speech in which he rejected accusations that the Brexit camp were "little Englanders", insisting that withdrawal from the EU will allow the UK to trade and co-operate with its continental neighbours.
