Body language

Post by puzzled on 19.07.11 18:44

Just wondering, is anyone looking at the body language of the participants in the Commons inquiry? What do they think of it?

Body language expert
Judi James, behaviour analyst
Submissive and remorseful? Haughty and snippy? Or even sly and faintly sinister like Mr Burns & Smithers from Sky TV’s The Simpsons? Once word had got out they were having coaching it was hard to second-guess how the Murdoch father and son body language performance might pan out. In the event it was a show-stopping and at times surreal double act, a little like watching a winning candidate on The Apprentice paired with a bad contestant on Mastermind.
The pair sat side by side with James in the power seat to the right of his father, with the duo showing a united front by using a softly mirrored hand-clasp that looked vaguely self-restraining. Once the questions started though we were watching a chalk-and-cheese combo, with James Murdoch the wordy, reasonable-sounding, helpful and polite spokesman, casting an even and wide eye-gaze around the room to emphasise his claim of transparency. He was keen to speak, acting agitated while his father was quizzed first, then using some Blair-esque hand gestures for emphasis when he did parry questions at last, with only a serial tongue-poke at the killer questions suggesting anxiety or distaste.
Rupert, by contrast, was for a lot of the time as immobile as a statue made, if not of granite then of MDF, offering monosyllabic answers and virtually no sighting of his eyes behind his lowered lids and glasses. It was clear what his desired message was because he would suddenly engage in GBH of the desk in front of him, slapping his palm down hard or stabbing it with a jabbing finger to make his point. His claim at the start: ‘This is the most humble day of my life’ was partly reflected in his body position, although his submissively lowered head and forward lean was partly prompted by what looked like poor hearing. Apart from that we were treated to tumbleweed pauses followed by shrugs or a swift ‘yes’ or ‘no’. When the pair were asked about Rebekah’s ‘impropriety’ it was James who spoke but it was Rupert’s head shaking in the background and as the questions went on it was Rupert who seemed to be instigating the answers even though it was his son voicing his words.

I wonder what made young Wendy Deng marry this 80 year old billionaire?

Perhaps it was her left hook, as the MP said afterwards big grin Give her credit - she really got stuck in when RM was attacked.

They were described on twitter earlier as Steptoe & Son. Not a bad analogy in my opinion.

What a happy couple

I understand that they have two children ages only 6 and 10 so there's a load of life in old Rupert yet.

To be fair to her. She could have just sat there whilst her husband was under attack (like James did) and thought more about her nails but she didn't. She got well and truly stuck in, flying above the other woman in the process.

Oh I agree, she did more than his son.
But talking about body language there are series and series of photos of them, and all show her putting him under her uuuhhmm spell, let's call it.
