I read his career history/CV and swooned.... Then I heard him speak... (even though that hatch was weird and he clearly didn't want to be there).

I've always thought Carney looks like he steal silly little shit from people when he's invited over.
Nothing big or noticeable, you know mundane stuff like a napping ring or a coaster just for shits and giggles

I have never met him or had shit stolen by him...just a feelinggrin

He is lush. Always has been always will be.

I heard him talk on the radio yesterday and thought he had a nice voice. YANBU smile

Tbh you'd be U not to have a crush wink

He's amazing. I'm so relieved he's here to mitigate this mess. Also, YANBU

EDisFunny Sun 26-Jun-16 13:42:58

He's rather nice, isn't he? YANBU

I don't think it was a hatch. I think he was standing at a lectern in front of a door (not that I've watched that clip several times now!!). It was just a strange camera angle.

YANBU at all.

Thought of saying Big Mac and fries to go

I've met him - he's attractive and impressive but short

(autocorrect changed that to "spoons", I'd like to spoon with him too)

AyeAmarok Sun 26-Jun-16 15:17:24

But yes the hatch thing was a bit bizarre.

GraceGrape Sun 26-Jun-16 15:18:28

Carney for PM.....

Although I guess he might be a bit too busy at the moment.

He's very attractive - but that clip of him the other day made it look as if he was behind a bank teller's window. I imagined a little room at the back full of bags with pound signs on, where he lives and just does book keeping all day (with a scratchy quill pen).

I'm glad that I wasn't the only to be a little flummoxed by the hatch
appearance on Friday!

And YANBU, OP wink.

BessieBraddocksEgg Sun 26-Jun-16 17:57:49

It did look like a hatch, or an old style bank teller window , pre-glass.

But he just wanted a door to escape through behind his lectern.wink

Canadians ooze reliability. (Except Justin Trudeau..)

Freshprincess Sun 26-Jun-16 18:04:49

I couldn't concentrate on what he was saying because I couldn't work out why he was stood behind a hatch. I think it was a unfortunately placed lectern.

He's got that calm unruffled thing going on.
