9 degrees deference

Friday, January 29, 2016 | 2 comments »

It's one for David Cameron's career scrapbook: that time when the German chief of staff for European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker bowed to him.

Here's the vid.



And here's the snapshot moment.





Eurovillageois may remember that the topcrat in question, Martin Selmayr, has greeted EU leaders like this before, notably Selmayr's ultimate boss, Mutti Merkel herself.

Cameron will doubtless take extra satisfaction from the trigonometrical undeniable fact that Selmayr bowed lower to the British PM than he did to Mutti.

By BM's calculation, a full 9 degrees.

Here's the proof: superimposed on each other, the freeze-frame moment when the German official's bow to each leader was at its nadir.





So why did Martin bow so low to Cameron?

A show of deference for the cameras?

A true sign of respect?

Or perhaps he was just back from the barbers, and wanted to show off his new hairdo...

    Writing on a term paper topic isn't really difficult if research is made timely. This perhaps implies that the pupils need to pick solutions which ensures them with well timed submission of the term paper. In this regard, it is but particular of the fact that the students must concentrate on the main facets of writing a procustomwriting term paper which otherwise assures assured large grades. Maybe, the students by themselves must make well timed analysis on the subject of the paper so that the submission will get well timed. If they are unsuccessful to do so, then they might as nicely loose on their scores. As a result, it is crucial to study and frame the content of the paper well timed so that the ultimate submission turns out to be fruitful.
