In an effort to mend bridges after what is now known as piggate David Cameron has invited film star Babe the Pig to Downing Street. It is hoped the visit will help move media attention on from last week when a former university friend of Mr. Cameron claimed that the prime minister may have been intimate with a dead pig as part of an entry ritual to a prestigious university society.
Number Ten is hoping that the visit will show that the prime minister is comfortable around animals and that it will diminish the allegations regarding Mr Cameron and the deceased pig.
Babe shot to fame in 1995 as the star of the film Babe, based on farmyard animals who could talk to each other. The film was a box office success propelling the young star to global fame.
It is this fame that Cameron and his associates will hope will close of the embarrassing allegation made against him. David will want to portray a respectful but relaxed persona. Downing Street have confirmed that pork will not be on the menu.
