Michael Spicer was in the Room Next Door to the PM’s CBI speech
Boris Johnson’s speech to business leaders at the CBI conference was so bad, it prompted a reporter to ask him if everything was okay.
'You lost your notes, you lost your place, you went off on a tangent about Peppa Pig – frankly, is everything okay?'

The performance was quite rightly panned on all platforms, including Twitter.

Never, ever trust a man who says "forgive me" instead of "I'm sorry."

You think that's bad, you should have heard the speech he gave to Peppa Pig World about the CBI.

If ever a speech cried out for the attention of Michael Spicer’s long-suffering assistant in the Room Next Door, it was this one – and it got it.
“Why are you suddenly looking at the speech like it’s been written in hieroglyphics with a sausage?”
And that last line!
Michael shared the sketch on Twitter, where it got this hearty welcome.
That’ll more than do, pig https://t.co/3P73tF733B
