The Labour Party declared in a reply to the speech, “The joke’s not odd anymore.” Johnson later protected his speech. “I think people got the wide majority of the point I wanted to do. I thought it went over well.”
Then people on Twitter responded to Boris Johnson’s speech. One of them tweeted, “Not enough. I was a bit dark [about] what I would find at Peppa Pig World but I loved it. Peppa Pig World is very much my kind of place.”
Meanwhile, a Peppa Pig World spokesperson did later reply: “We were pleased the prime minister dedicated so much of his speech to us.”
