Boris Johnson makes Biden and Sholz laugh on last day of G7 summit. The world’s seven powerful leaders, including Boris Johnson, have been blasted online for their seemingly blasé approach to the summit, as they were accused of trying to look ‘hip and trendy.’ Images of the politicians posing during a photo-call at Elmau Castle, Bavaria, have gone viral on social media – as many pointed out how ‘relaxed’ they looked. One critic online wrote: ‘Why does the G7 Summit look like the dads and uncles at the end of a wedding who had 35 Heinekens and are accosting the photographer while their wives tell at them that their taxi is outside?’
