Meeting on Spec

Just seemed a standard shot at first but if you know a couple of the characters in it, it becomes more intriguing, even untoward. Not looking for a caption but for an analysis from what you see.

    Err, who are they? Inquiring minds would like to know.

    Clue’s in the word ‘Spectator’ behind them on the window.

    It’s Fraser Nelson, editor, Arch-Remoaner, CINO, London bubble and I don’t know the little fella.

    The interesting one to me is one of the two London Isabels, the other being Oakeshotte who is shacked up with Richard Tice, head of TBP.

    This Isabel, surname Hardman unless she married the ex-Labour MP she was on with, is deputy or assistant editor of the Speccy but formerly one of the good gals of Breitbart and similar. She retired twice, once for mental health reasons, once to have a baby. Now she seems to have backslid to Labour. Here he is:

    The body language on that couch is interesting to me, maybe it is to others too.

      The body language caught me eye too. I think the girl arrived at the meeting and immediately realised that her skirt was a bit short for sofa sitting. The chap on the sofa is cringing away from her in an attempt to reassure her of his best intentions.

      By the time that bottle empties a bit they’ll be all over each other like mink, live ones rather than nice warm coats.

      At the very top left on the wall, is that a picture of Che Guevara or maybe Piers Corbyn, difficult to tell them apart.

    As the woman is more casually dressed than the men, who are still wearing jackets, I would suggest it’s her gaff. She appears to be looking sternly at the bloke in glasses who seems to be trying to look underneath the sheet(s?) of paper on her knee and up her skirt. The man on the setee is so relaxed in her company he has started undoing his tie (suitable for bondage games, apparently, so I’m told, once the rest of the booze is drunk?), but not so relaxed to have taken off his jacket. The (alleged) perv is drinking from a different shaped glass containing a clearer liquid. Possibly a water glass rather than a spirit glass. Is he a tee totaller, not important enough to be offered booze, or must remain sober to answer/ask questions in the pod cast or radio broadcast (they are microphones in front of them, aren’t they?). Rather than exhibiting extreme political views by having a photo of the raping, murdering, torturing, Che Guevara, she is showing that lefties have a sense of humour by showing Robert Lindsay as the reactionary Wolfie Smith.
    Of course, I could just be talking bollocks.

      Doubt you are talking bollox, she’s quite underdressed for the meeting and that’s part of her Millennial or late Gen X ‘anything goes’ shtick – she’s the great female journo, after all, they’re the ones on at her [she is famous for being called ‘totty’ by an MP], is quite impressed by all these powerbrokers feting her, she was never taught though how to dress for this occasion or that.

      The male equivalent is James Delingpole who was taken apart by Andrew Neill, which woke him up.
