Keir Starmer isn’t a big fan of Peppa Pig World, unlike Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

In late November, Johnson attracted criticism and mockery for his rambling speech to the Confederation of British Industry. The PM lost his place during the address, compared himself to Moses, impersonated a car – transcribed as ‘arum arum aaaaaaaaag’ by Downing Street – and now infamously, went on a long tangent about his fondness of Hampshire’s Peppa Pig World.

In a bid to promote the private sector, he said ‘the true driver of growth is not the government’ before thoroughly discussing his trip to the theme park.


‘Yesterday I went, as we all must, to Peppa Pig World. Hands up if you’ve been to Peppa Pig World! I loved it. Peppa Pig World is very much my kind of place. It has very safe streets, discipline in schools, heavy emphasis on new mass transit systems. Even if they’re a bit stereotypical about Daddy Pig,’ he inexplicably told attendees.

In a new interview with The Times, the Labour leader responded to Johnson’s sentiments with his own review of the attraction.

‘I have been to Peppa Pig World, of course I have. It’s dreadful. Peppa Pig is hugely successful. Our daughter was absolutely in love with Peppa Pig for a very long time. I’ve seen no end of Peppa Pig programmes,’ he said.

‘This comes back to our central division between us and the Tories. You do need serious government. You do need government that has a respectful, grown-up relationship with business. That’s what we’ve put on the table,’ Starmer added.
