<div> <p><span class="caps">LONDON</span> – British Prime Minister Boris Johnson is on “great form” and a speech to business leaders where he appeared to lose his place before talking about a visit to Peppa Pig World does not raise concerns about his leadership, his deputy said.</p> <p>Johnson was briefly left lost for words on Monday when he lost his place in notes during a speech before regaling the Confederation of British Industry with an anecdote about his recent visit to a Peppa Pig theme park.</p> <p>“The Prime Minister is on great form”, Deputy Prime Minister Dominic Raab told <span class="caps">BBC</span> TV when asked about the speech.</p> <p>Asked if there were serious concerns of Johnson’s Downing Street office about Johnson’s grip on the job, Raab said “I don’t agree.”</p> <p>“In relation to Peppa Pig, it is a fantastic British export around the world, and I think that was the point the Prime Minister was making,” Raab said.</p> <p/> </div>
