Labour last night issued a press release last night promising:
Peppa Pig Accepts Labour Invitation to Join Visit to Children’s Centre
The Labour Party has organised a visit to a children’s centre in South London to highlight our policies to support families. Yvette Cooper and Tessa Jowell will be shown around the centre and we are delighted that Peppa Pig, the star of children’s television, has accepted our invitation to join the visit.
For those of you without children under 5, Peppa Pig is a mega-star phenomenon, bigger than even Elvis nowadays. Guido understands that Peppa Pig has pulled out of the event for fear it would be seen as an endorsement of the Labour Party…
UPDATE : Scenes of devastating disappointment at the Coin Street Nursery as tearful toddlers and young mothers learn a bitter lesson: Labour breaks its promises. Tearful toddlers asking “Where’s Peppa Pig? You promised!” Angry mothers and wailing children can only blame the wicked witches; Yvette and Tessa. Yvette has just issued one of her barmy soundbites “the Conservative and Liberal Democrats would form a ‘Coalition of Cuts for Children’ that would put children in the frontline for spending cuts”. Not claiming they would actually eat your babies – which was probably what Ed Balls wanted to claim.
