BORIS Johnson’s bizarre ravings about Peppa Pig World make marginally more sense when you learn that it is actually a real place.

Yes, the Prime Minister did spend the day at the Hampshire theme park – and pictures of him, wife Carrie and son Wilfred enjoying the children’s rides there prove it.

In the photographs Johnson is shown sitting on the Grampy Rabbit’s Sailing Club water ride while wearing a green beanie hat.

George Bell, another park attendee, said he was on the same ride when their carriages collide. He said the Prime Minister “remarked the ride was ‘awfully slow’”.

The National:

Peppa Pig World is located in Paultons Park, an amusement park in the New Forest National Park, Hampshire.

It has more than 70 rides and attractions, although not all of them are themed around the children’s character Peppa Pig – that’s just one part of the park.

There are more traditional thrill rides and rollercoasters, drop tower rides and a Ferris wheel too.

During his speech to the CBI conference today, Johnson remarked that Peppa Pig World was his kind of place.

“Yesterday I went as we all must to Peppa Pig World," he told the audience, who had been promised a speech on green growth including policy announcements.

"I don’t know if you’ve been to Peppa Pig World, hands up if anybody’s been to Peppa Pig World. Not enough! I was a bit hazy as to what I would find at Peppa Pig World, but 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 kept going: “But the real lessons for me about going to Peppa Pig World, I’m surprised you haven't been there … was about the power of UK creativity … who would have believed that a pig that looks like a hairdryer, or possibly a Picasso-like hairdryer, a pig that was rejected by the BBC, would now be exported to 180 countries with theme parks both in America and in China as well as in the New Forest.”
