Peppa Pig.

Peppa Pig will not, apparently, be attending the Labour Party's launch of their 'manifesto for families' - even though, according to the BBC
... the television series series, which follows the pig, her family and friends, is shown in 180 countries.

Its five-year-old central character helps to promote the government-funded Sure Start children's centres.
The producers, Channel 5, decided that
"Peppa Pig is a well known fan of Sure Start children's centres but, in the interests of avoiding any controversy or misunderstanding, we have agreed she should not attend."
Mr Mandelson said it the BBC's fault, Mr Balls said he'd been at a children's centre with Peppa Pig a few weeks ago and knows she has 'many dates in her diary'.

And Peppa Pig? What did she say about the decision?

Well, she'll say anything she's told to say - because she's a cartoon character.

*shakes head*
