Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

... and yet the Press is covered with photos of all 3 having a nice chat in a pub yesterday. I mean, I have not been able to assess the accuracy of the date of this meeting- but it 'looks' genuine.
I've seen the photos, and it was a exclusive, expensive London restaurant, not a pub. Witnesses say the encounter lasted no more than 5 minutes.

Now...normal behaviour if a friend came to your table during dinner would be to ask them to pull up a chair and offer them a glass of whatever you're drinking, at the very least, but look at the body language here... BoJo stands to greet Farage (blocking) whilst Stanley is in a classic open, seated dominant male pose. Stanley is definitely the boss of the piece.

Now look at who Johnson Snr. actually is. 20+ years working for the EU. Devoted Conservative. Devout Remainer. Those are 3 damned good reasons to despise everything that Farage is, and has done to the Conservative Party and Britain's place within the EU. The two are hardly daggers drawn, but I strongly suspect that Stanley has a seething resentment towards Farage and doesn't embrace the prospect of his errant son being associated with him. If Stanley could stitch Farage up once and for all, and come away from it with his reputation intact, I reckon he would.
