      If only he would grow a backbone and stand up to Europe and put an end to this homosexual marriage malarky. Does he not realise that you only get one go as PM so you might as well go flat out and do what you think is right rather than what the chattering classes say what’s right.

      Indeed. Dave’s open leg lean forward stance is pretty in control, while Romney has crossed his legs at the knee – which is seen as a very feminine posture in the US unlike here in Europe.

      For Guido to not get this suggests he’s not as familiar at reading people in face to face business as he ought to be given the big business talk he comes out with.

    No he doesn’t.

    It’s natural for people to adopt an active body style when talking, and a passive one when listening. Photgraphs, being static, also emphasise this.

    To prove the above statement youl’d need to see a passive body style when talking.

    When I was a teacher, some training covered this, and demonstrated talking with the body language reversed. It was bizarre and really showed how much we expect this.

    I once sat through (endured might be a better description) a management course in which one lecture was about body language. The lecturer explained carefully how seeing someone scratch their nose meant that they were probably lying. Said lecturer somewhat undermined that statement by continuing to explain that it could just mean the person had an itchy nose.

    Ever since, I’ve tended to regard ‘reading body language’ as mostly bollocks.

    If you want to deal with the taxation deficit, you’d better start the job first.

    All you’ve done so far is to hide your Tory voters’ tax evasions in the national debt and call it the deficit so the rest of us have to pay it, you thieving liar.

      Taxation deficit? Also known as “spending more than you earn.”

      You really think taxation should be increased (ad infinitum) to match spending, rather than reducing spending to match tax revenue?

      I remember when I supported Labour, back in my teens. Dreaming up ways to spend other people’s money was soooo simple. Of course, the idea soured once I got a job.

    That hugh grant speech is actually one of the most embarrassing pieces of cinema ever produced by an English director. Why so embarrassing? Because it was pure fantasy and also a window into the mind of the powerless British elite. It encapsulates British culture, to be sure, but not in a way that gives credit.

    No British PM can give that speech because to give such a speech you would have to be the leader of a country. Americans, rightly, look on the British PM as the leader of a parish council. They know, full well, that such a speech is not possible because a British PM is a plaything. An indifference.

    Goofy post, again – Guido. You should never align yourself with anything Hugh Grant does.

A ‘senior Conservative party official’ passes judgement on Theresa May:

“She is boring. A technocrat. She is Philip Hammond with a fanny. Not interesting, but rendered interesting by circumstance. And that circumstance is that she is a woman. And in an age when the Prime Minister gets it in the neck for refusing to wear a fucking T-shirt that says he is a feminist, that is a rocket boost right underneath you.”



Left on Left says:

The lefties are attacking because the panellist is a millionaire and lives in a London home worth upwards of two million. Someone had best tell them he’s called Ed Miliband.
