    At least Romney looks comfortable with Dave. BTW, UK PM’s have been supplicants to likely POTUS incumbents sine Yalta.

    This is priceless Guido

    BOTH are NOT in “”power””

    One is a no chance republican nut job
    The other is the Leader of a Coalition Government

    Call me stupid….well go on…who gives a shit but I see nothing wrong with that picture. OTT this time Guido. Scraping the bottom of the barrel and getting shitty advice from some ‘body language’ guru who needs firing.

    That looks more like lubricant than supplicant as “our Dave2 explains how he’s “ever so ‘umble”.

    What would Maggie Do? says:

    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.

    It was a choice between Brown and Cameron. If asked to choose between a dog dropping and a wet lettuce, which would you prefer?

    Is that Rebekah Brooks carved into Dave’s mantelpiece?

  31. 31
    Mark Austin says:

    Dave looks like the supplicant in Downing Street.

    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.

    That may well be true but Mitt is deffo a ‘top’ and Dave is deffo a ‘bottom’

    Dave should ask Romney about Ron Paul.

    Engineer says:

    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.

    Alex says:

    Funny how cretins like this will admonish others for (incorrectly) perceived racism, yet think it’s completely acceptable when they come out with the genuine article, and all just because the person it’s directed at doesn’t share their views.

    You ignorant fucking hypocrite.

    So, body language is to be sniffed at?

    Jimmy says:

    “My message today is clear and unequivocal. Be in no doubt: we will go in and finish the job. We will deal with the deficit.”

    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.

    That’s just how David Cameron likes to sit on the Downing Street butt plug, preparing for another meeting with the US president.

    Quite right. The bollocks are a dead giveaway.

    I tend to keep mine concealed in interviews and formal situations where they might betray me.

    Obvious innit says:

    He looks like

    1. a schoolboy waiting on the advice of the Careers Master (except he’s never had a career or a real job)

    2. A supplicant receiving personal counselling from his lawyer / Dr / therepist (except there ain’t no desk)

    3. A spineless stand-in UK premier with only a few weeks to go.

  52. 52
    SP4BS says:

    He is much more “party line” than many of the others at time with a bit of very ill-advised nonesense like this. I’d even guess we know him, and he’s even stood to be a labour councillor.

  53. 53
    Engineer says:

    Funny how this ‘tax evasion’ wasn’t a problem when the banks were shovelling loads of tax revenue into the Treasury, paying thenselves massive bonuses at the same time. Wasn’t so evil then, was it? “Intensely relaxed about people getting filthy rich” to quote somebody or other….

    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.

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

    You really think taxation should be increased (presumably forever) 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.

    Ah ffs we Jimmy says:

    Jimmy I thought you loved paying taxes, you keep attacking this crowd but you never said anything about your Libor friends , who taxed anything that moved and taxed it if it didn’t, how about that road tax Libor Manchester threw in your face and the id cards we were getting with the statement “if you have done nothing wrong” etc, closure of libraries , fire stations, you and your friends are the deficit, you pay.

    “Now lookee here my pinko friend..I need you in. I’ll make y’all the same deal we made ‘Thin Tony’. Join us in an Armageddon war an y’all be richer than Croesus.
    How ’bout it Dave? Ain’cha never fancied your own yachts and planes and cars and a tax free, expenses paid lifestyle?..do yer ole brain a favour, son.

    I quite agree with this but it should be an Islamic golf course.

    – No women in the club house
    – No women full stop
    – Unislamic 19th hole to be replaced by a nice minarette
    – NO GOLF – as it’s clearly un-Islamic as it isn’t mentioned in the Quran

    I do know somthing about body langauge.

    Actually Dave is in a fairly agressive posture. Sitting forward. Hands clasped (so as not to lash out).

    Mitt looks like he’s trying hard to sell something to a difficult customer.

    Don’t fret. Romney is accustomed to the fact that he had bought, or can buy nearly anyone he talks to. He treated Cameron interview like a job interview; Dave’s.

    Yes of course I was looking unhappy & like a fish out of water……..

    due to another mess up my PR team. They should know by now that I am left of

    centre, I have told then often enough, but they put on the right of centre in this

    Photo Op with some Canadian nongay called Smitt or something like that. The

    voters will start to think I am a true blue & like one of them, nothing could be

    further from the truth. Must dash as I have a very important conference call

    with The Master who has kindly allowed a brief fornication with him about my

    best position tomorrow.

    Guidoisafuckingprat says:

    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.

    probably I should look up this speech (in some film is it ?) I do think there is a lot of strength in the vote of the people who are proud to be British. Now if we could just get self sufficient in power and food.

    Easy. I’d choose the dog dropping and wet lettuce. I wouldn’t want Brown or Cameron.

  96. 96
    Anonymous says:

    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.

  97. 97
    Captain Pedalo says:

    Mr Cameron refused to see me in an Election year saying it was against the rules.

    With Mr Romney things appear to have changed.

    Britannia may once have ruled the waves but the whole world can say that today it is Britannia who waves the rules.

    Is that Cameron with a waxworks dummy of Nixon, or the other way round.

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
