Comparison of Moses, Peppa Page and Broom Broom – Johnson gives a ‘weird’ speech
He lost the thread, browsed through the manuscript, and got into strange comparisons: Prime Minister Boris Johnson appeared adorably before British business chiefs – which he himself described as “well done”.
IIn a speech to business leaders, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson compared himself to Moses, citing Lenin, imitating engine noise and admiring a visit to a theme park.
In between lost at the annual meeting of Industrieverbands CBI For seconds, the thread frantically flipped between his documents, British media reported. “Forgive me,” he said several times. Listeners described the speech as either “catastrophic” or “strange”.
Johnson said Monday that his 10-point plan for a green industrial revolution is similar to the Ten Commandments brought by Moses from Mount Sinai. Lenin once said that the communist revolution was the Soviet power as well as the electrification of the entire country. The next industrial revolution is green electrification as well as the electrification of the whole country.”
Johnson also promoted electric motors. “As a former motoring reporter, I can tell you that electric cars may not hum like a quiet pigeon, and may not have the roar, or growl, that you like, but they have so much torque that they start faster than a Ferrari at traffic lights.”
Pig ‘like Picasso’s hair dryer’
For minutes, Johnson then praised the “Peppa Pig World” theme park, which he had visited the day before with his family (son Wilfred is only a year old, and wife Carrie pregnant again) which is based on the cartoon character Peppa Pig. He praised safe roads, school discipline and a good local transportation system.
The pig, which “looks like a hair dryer painted by Picasso”, also became an export. For him, it shows the power of British creativity, Johnson said, urging the public to visit the park, which is a six-hour drive away. No state or government official in London could have brought up Peppa Pig.
This isn’t the first time Johnson has come across strange comparisons. At the United Nations General Assembly in New York, for example, he mentioned Kermit the Frog. Speeches like these are part of Johnson’s shirt-sleeved leadership style that actually gets along well with many Britons. This time the response was mixed.
The newspaper “Daily Mail” in its online version prominently In the letter, also described as “stranger”, he repeated a question from a worried reporter: “You lost your notes, you didn’t find your place, you could to Peppa Pig – frankly, that’s all right? asked the Prime Minister.
But he replied, “I think people understood the vast majority of the points I wanted to make, and I think they were well received.”
