So-called prime minister Boris Johnson has been meeting with French president Emmanuel Macron in Paris today.
Today I met President @EmmanuelMacron in Paris. Let’s get Brexit done, sensibly and pragmatically and in the interests of both sides. Let’s get on with deepening and intensifying the friendship and the partnership between our nations. pic.twitter.com/qv7BlAOhW7

There was lots of talk about Brexit and the backstop and so on, but that’s not why we’re here.

This is one of those distilled culture war moments isn’t it. Anyone with civility thinks: No, you unspeakable buffoon. Anyone without thinks: Yeah, sticking it to the frogs. https://t.co/fkGWxeaTtD

Foot on the table at Elysee palace whilst visiting French president #Macron.
Imagine the outrage on the British tabloids if a foreign PM did this in Buckingham Palace!

Macron will never be forgiven for failing to tell this prick to get his foot off the table and back in his mouth where it belongs. pic.twitter.com/mwUawBLGQl

Boris Johnson looks like a divorced dad who has arrived early to pick his kid up and is desperately trying to look cool in front of his ex wife’s new boyfriend. pic.twitter.com/5ial3v4AAT

Johnson “I hear you’re in a spot of trouble for spending public money on this palace”
Macron “At least our public can see where their money went”

I know about as much about international diplomacy as I do the bullingdon rules of wiffwaff. But I do know it’s common decency to not put your fucking feet on other peoples’ furniture. pic.twitter.com/D9eX0pCKdW

To be fair to Johnson – why’s that, you might say – there was more to the picture than the still image suggests.
WATCH: Here’s the Reuters video of Boris Johnson putting his foot on the Elysee furniture. It seems President Macron was making small talk suggesting the table would work equally well as a footstool should the PM want to recline, which Johnson then jokingly does pic.twitter.com/dnv37t9mS4
