Xi Jinping’s epic moves

No really. I know it’s not a phrase you hear often.

We’ve mentioned the importance of who goes through a door first in politics here before. The implication is that whoever is last through is in charge.

If you’re playing this game, you have a double disadvantage if you are a) the guest and b) on the non-handle side of the door. Not that this bothers old smoothie Xi, however. Check out the way he effortlessly outmanoeuvres David Cameron in this video.

Get in there you beauty

  1. 1- what’s wrong with the guy swinging this door like it’s a kid’s toy?
    2- Xi didn’t do a thing. Cameron stepped in of his own accord and quite rudely given that he is the host.


    • Xi turns back to “acknowledge the crowd” (they’re all journalists and photographers, they don’t need an encore), trapping Cameron into going in first and looking like a guest in his own home.
