Is this a good look? Feet on the coffee table?

Whitewavemark2 Thu 22-Aug-19 16:13:32

To think that this will go around the world.

What loutish behaviour.

Lessismore Thu 22-Aug-19 16:20:22

No matter what your politics, this looks bad.

Disgusting and so so rude, arrogant and uncouth. Incredible sad

Ew really? I find Macron quite repellent.

LullyDully Thu 22-Aug-19 17:14:59

I am not too bothered about how he is sitting but just want a good deal on the ***** Brexit after 3years.

EllanVannin Thu 22-Aug-19 17:19:42

He must feel comfortable in his company. Good job the wife isn't around !

If it were found that any member of staff in our company (and i would belive any company) sat with his feet on the furniture while in the presence of a client or customer he/she would be subject to disciplinary procedure and i believe that any member of management would want that person "out the door".

What a spectacle of a leader to place before the world.

Macron is Mr Suave compared to Johnson

Lessismore Thu 22-Aug-19 17:57:23

" the wife" which one? or the " special friend"

EllanVannin Thu 22-Aug-19 17:58:33

Macron's wife as it's their place isn't it ?

Lessismore Thu 22-Aug-19 18:01:23

Comfortable? He looks horrendous. Can't imagine Madam M. duster in hand.

Grandad1943 Thu 22-Aug-19 18:03:25

Johnson as a man has no respect for any person, any other persons property or even himself.

He is total tu*d of the first order.

Lessismore Thu 22-Aug-19 18:04:23

mmm Grandad, I like your style.

petra Thu 22-Aug-19 19:09:44

Look at the film clip on channel 4 news and see what really happened.

Opal Thu 22-Aug-19 19:27:41

The French president appeared to indicate the table would work equally well as a footstool should the prime minister want to recline, which Mr Johnson then did.
All this "pearl clutching" on this thread for such a minor detail! Really?????

Nortsat46 Thu 22-Aug-19 19:39:04

I think this is a worthwhile discussion, thank you Lessismore.

Johnson's posture appears to be something about 'claiming' the space. However, to my eyes it looks rude and juvenile.

Maggiemaybe Thu 22-Aug-19 20:25:45

I'm no fan of Boris, but they were joking around - nothing to see here really.

The important thing is that President Macron intimated for the first time that the Withdrawal Agreement could possibly be amended.

Callistemon Thu 22-Aug-19 20:30:51

Some people don't 'get' jokes though Maggiemaybe, petra and Opal

Or take everything they see at face value without investigating the story behind the picture.

Lessismore Thu 22-Aug-19 20:31:43

Oh you are so right petra, Boris was just having a jolly jape. All is right with the world. Chuck out Johny Foreigner and we will all be home in time for supper.

Callistemon Thu 22-Aug-19 20:34:28

Of course, it could be a good ruse by Jean Foreigner (sic) who invited Boris Johnson to try out the table as a footstool knowing full well the photographers, pearl clutchers etc around the world would fall for it.

Boris shouldn't have fallen for the sly move though!

This thread is very amusing, though, petra!

From the pearl-clutching through the gasps of indignation to utter pomposity


GrannyGravy13 Thu 22-Aug-19 20:46:01

Boris can hold discussions with Macron "stark b****ck naked, standing on his head whilst singing the national anthem" !!!

At least he is talking to European leaders and trying to find something that our "numpty" MPs might vote for (as opposed to Theresa Mays WDA that was rejected on 3 occasions)
