‘Peppa Pig ramblings perfect metaphor for Johnson’s chaotic government’, say Lib Dems

Responding to Boris Johnson’s speech to the Confederation of British Industry conference today, Liberal Democrat Leader Ed Davey said:

“Businesses are crying out for clarity. Instead, all they got was Boris Johnson rambling on about Peppa Pig.

“It is a perfect metaphor for Johnson’s chaotic, incompetent Government as it trashes our economy, but it is not worthy of a British Prime Minister.

“The Conservatives are hiking up taxes on small businesses and working families while failing to tackle the labour shortages crippling our economic recovery.

“The Prime Minister famously said he was going to “f” business – the least he could do is to deliver a decent f-ing speech.”
