    Feel free to post serious comments about the summit.

    But there are a number of photos of this kind circulating with derisory or pitying comments re Trump and Johnson - from people all over the world. How the world sees us.

    So exactly how many smiles do we see in the picture? (Aside from the obvious ones)

    It's one of those moments when for whatever reason you're obliged to share a meal with colleagues - or maybe distant relatives at a wedding - and there are two who everyone just wishes would disappear off the face of the earth.

    I am actually reassured by this picture. Although it's embarrassing and humilliating for the UK to be represented in this way, I'm heartened to see that the leaders of other nations still know how to behave with a bit of decorum. Bet not one of them would have really put their feet on that table.

    Two of the worst leaders of a country ever.

    Yeah right up there with Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot, Mussolini, Franco, Salazar, Amin, Saddam Hussein, Leoplod II, Kim il Sung, Ceausescu, Hoxha.
    If you take away the war and genocide, Hitler was not too bad compared to Trump and Johnson.

    Do you know what - I was predicting you'd come up with something like that.

    Most of those I have seen are commenting on what a po-faced lot everyone except Trump and Johnson seem to be.

    I fell into your trap by thinking you really believed what you wrote.

    Trump is no Hitler, his ‘bone spurs’ prevented him from serving his country in the military.

    Not too many of these led democratic countries though...

    Lovely word on the Today programme this morning to describe Johnson's relationship to Trump, "poodleisation". Of course Blair had a similar relationship with Bush, that worked out well.

    "U.S. President Donald Trump has missed a discussion on climate with other world leaders at the Group of Seven summit in France.
    Trump was scheduled to attend Monday's session on climate, biodiversity and oceans, but his chair was empty during a portion of the meeting reporters were allowed to witness."

    Lots of links, little detail so far https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/worl...sses-g-7-meeting-on-climate-change/ar-AAGlhbA

    Trump was absent from the G7 leaders discussion on the Amazon's fires, he probably felt that Bezos is capable of dealing with his own issues.
