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

When I saw the heading I thought it was more of the Terry Wogan manspreading 😂 Not someone ( a male) jokingly lifting his leg.

With a bit of 'manspreading' thrown in for laughs.

Callistemon Thu 22-Aug-19 20:54:42

I thought it meant he was putting on weight again.

Which does appear to be the case.

Lessismore Thu 22-Aug-19 21:04:46

Oh get over yourself petra.

Go and clutch your pearls.

He is a liar, a cheat, a philanderer, an entitled, old boys network buffoon, who looks like a complete prat.

I know it's a bit late in the evening for you to follow the thread

is that the merest teeny weeny bit nasty?

Callistemon Thu 22-Aug-19 22:22:11

You must admit, though, Less , that this thread is dafter than the joke between Macron and Johnson which resulted in BJ placing his foot near the table for barely half a second.

grin

Thanks for the giggle.
Some of the pompous posts are very funny.

Lessismore Thu 22-Aug-19 22:26:36

It doesn't give petra the right to be unpleasant to me, personally though does it?

Boosgran Thu 22-Aug-19 22:50:05

Thanks lessimore really funny thread- a good laugh! Can’t agree that Macron is a ‘hottie’ though!

Callistemon Thu 22-Aug-19 22:51:28

Oh lordy, no!

Joyfulnanna Thu 22-Aug-19 23:05:00

Haha granny gravy

Gosh!
People don't half pile in before reading all the facts.
Actually, Mr Macron invited BoJo to use it as a stool as it was remarked (in conversation) that it was a low height for a table and that is why Boris playfully touched his foot to it.

Next time, know the whole story.
I'd hate to think anyone making comments before knowing all the facts, could ever sit on a jury.

Have to agree GabriellaG54 definitely an over reaction there, think Boris would have grounds for unfair dismissal if he worked for Grandad43

Boosgran Fri 23-Aug-19 08:13:17

GG54 completely agree with both your posts.

merlotgran Fri 23-Aug-19 08:34:43

Agree with GG54.

Boris knew Macron was setting him up because the cameras were there. It was just a joke!

We chuckled when Macron's dog peed against a gilded fireplace during a government meeting in the Elysée palace but there is outrage at the briefest touch of a shoe on an occasional table.

Get a grip.

GabriellaG54 agree with your posts.

Poppyred Fri 23-Aug-19 09:14:43

The usual rude comments from those that don’t matter!

The usual rude comments from those that don’t matter!

Would it be possible to share with us a list of those who matter and those who don't?

Callistemon Fri 23-Aug-19 09:49:58

GabriellaG54
Goodness me yes, I agree, frightening!
A miscarriage of justice indeed
grin

Poppyred Fri 23-Aug-19 09:51:52

Shame, shame you know your names!!

GrannyGravy13 Fri 23-Aug-19 09:56:33

Poppyred your post of 09.51 was not very helpful.

If you are intending to shame or insult a poster/s please be so good as to let us know?

Callistemon Fri 23-Aug-19 09:56:55

Everyone matters

So I'm confused

Lessismore Fri 23-Aug-19 09:57:58

What on earth are you talking about? And no, I won't feel shame.

How dare you.

Poppyred Fri 23-Aug-19 10:06:02

So it’s ok for you lot to insult and name call anyone who’s politics you don’t agree with? Pathetic! He had his foot up on a table -GET A GRIP!!
