After the tense talks broke up, Miss Sturgeon said the meeting was ‘business like’ but ‘cordial’.
While a beaming Miss Sturgeon left by the front exit of the hotel afterwards, Mrs May slipped out by the back door for an immediate return to London.
Despite slightly awkward smiles for the sole photographer allowed in for the start of the hour-long meeting, the sparks are thought to have flown in private after a bitter slanging match over recent weeks.
Unusually there was no on-camera handshake – a routine pleasantry at most encounters between dignitaries – and body language analyst Judi James cast an eye over the proceedings for MailOnline.
The PM was all about the power-posing, sitting squarely in her seat and splaying to suggest status, with her legs uncrossed and both elbows on the arms of her chair. Nicola Sturgeon crossing her leg away from May suggested a desire to make an escape and although she placed one elbow on the arm of the chair closest to the Prime Minister, which is an act of appeasement that suggests she is still keen to listen to the Tory leader.
The Prime Minister and First Minister both arrived at the Crowne Plaza Hotel Glasgow for their talks this afternoon as Mrs May completed as the final stop on her pre-Article 50 tour.
At one point both women used a hand clasp that involved meshed fingers but whereas May’s fingers were held almost straight, showing a lack of tension, Sturgeon’s were bent tight, showing the amount of effort she was putting into the ‘smile and wave’ poses
Unlike May’s quasi-submissive rituals the first time they met, when she allowed Sturgeon to look very much the host and the person in charge, this time the PM was all about the power-posing, sitting squarely in her seat and splaying to suggest status, with her legs uncrossed and both elbows on the arms of her chair. While Sturgeon was pursed and crossed May’s pose was all about confidence and power.
Her smiles held a hint of genuine, relaxed humour that gave her a sense of parental authority
After Trump’s sulky teenager put-down of Angela Merkel in The Oval Office, this polite, smiling and even – at times – heavily mirrored body language performance between May and Sturgeon should have been signaling that these two alpha females had a grudging soft-spot for one another despite their political animosity.
However, frosty best describes it, as – although not quite Bette Davis and Joan Crawford at loggerheads – these tight smiles and vacant stares were certainly reminiscent of Mapp and Lucia at their warring best.
Miss Sturgeon was still smiling as she left the Crowne Plaza by the front exit after the meeting in Glasgow. Mrs May is thought to have been slipped out by the back door
Last time May and Sturgeon met it was all about the handshake.
May performed a lowering ritual to suggest a desire to bond and although Sturgeon appeared to have her in a vice-like grip both women’s smiles suggested they were prepared to put any power-play nonsense to one side and get down to some even-handed debate and discussion.
A few weeks down the line though and they look well past the stage of pretending to be chums.
With their chairs turned in towards one another and down the window end of a rather narrow room they were forced into adopting similar poses on their chairs, although intrinsically their subtler signals couldn’t have been more different.
A smiling Sturgeon looked tense and rather anxious.
Crossing her leg away from May suggested a desire to make an escape and although she placed one elbow on the arm of the chair closest to the Prime Minister, which is an act of appeasement that suggests she is still keen to listen to the Tory leader.
Her smile ranged from a tiny, tense mouth-pucker with an oddly raised chin that suggested indignation or frustration to a wider but very rigid performed smile that looked frosty and lacking in genuine warmth.

While both women looked superficially mirrored which can suggest like-mindedness the underlying signals suggest the opposite.

The lack of a handshake said it all, really.
The shake is the classic sign of rapport and a desire for co-operation but it seems neither woman was keen to perform the ritual if their heart wasn’t in it.
Fortunately there was none of the nonsense poor Angela had to go through with Trump where she found herself asking for a shake while he ignored and rejected her.
May and Sturgeon did no dithering about or sideways glances to suggest a shake might have been on the cards at all, hinting they’d already agreed off-stage to scrap that particular ritual.
Once the cameras pulled back both women dropped the rigid smiles and May’s hands appeared to droop.
And then came the frostiest moment of all.
While Sturgeon sat with her pursed smile, and during the kind of moment when you could expect to see the women chatting, May appeared to turn behind Sturgeon and stare out the window almost as though Sturgeon wasn’t there, smiling all the time just in case she looked anything other than polite.
The act of ignoring her must have felt even more chilly in their confined space.

Their meeting was in the C R O W N E P L A Z A H O T E L. Nice place.
So why’s the (supposedly) two MOST IMPORTANT WOMEN in the UK holding a meeting in what can only be described as a cupboard with a view?
So were ALL 14 rooms in use? Really? On a random Monday in March? Emm, ok then!!
Actually the entire place looks lovely. It certainly doesn’t appear the type o hotel that would have MANKY carpets BEFORE the season has even started!! I know for a fact that any halfway decent Hotel does a huge spring clean in the winter & it ALWAYS includes getting ALL the carpets cleaned. So it is highly unlikely the Crowne Plaza just didn’t bother. It’s a 4 star hotel!!
But THAT was the room they chose to put the First Minister & The Prime Minister in?? Was there NOWHERE else? They put them in THAT room, KNOWING who they were & KNOWING there would be some sort of coverage from either a TV or MSM reporters or even both?!!
& they didn’t gi the carpet the once over??
That just doesn’t make sense.

Construction of the building’s superstructure began in 1988, its construction featuring prominently across the Clyde from the Glasgow Garden Festival of that year. It opened the following year as the Forum Hotel, and later came under the ownership of Queens Moat Houses where it was renamed the Glasgow Moat House International, which was later shorterned to Glasgow Moat House.
In 2005, Queens Moat Houses entered into a franchise agreement with InterContinental Hotels Group to operate the hotel as a Crowne Plaza hotel. Queens Moat Houses plc was a British public limited company engaged primarily in the hotel business. It came to public attention after the suspension of its shares on 31 March 1993 consequent upon significant financial difficulties which precipitated a spectacular collapse. The company was subsequently investigated under Section 432(2) of the Companies Act 1985. Queens Moat Houses was bought by Goldman Sachs in August 2005. The company was then renamed QMH Limited.
The remaining 18 UK hotels, operated by QMH UK Limited (formerly Queens Moat Houses UK Limited), are either operated under franchise agreements with InterContinental Hotels Group – 12 Holiday Inn and 3 Crowne Plaza hotels, or are members of the Best Western consortium – 3 Best Western Moat House Hotels.http://hospitalitytechnology.edgl.com/news/Hotelbeds,-IHG-Announce-Partnership109243

WIKI Freemasonry in Scotland
Most Freemasons in Scotland traditionally choose to be advanced as Mark Master Masons after completing the three degrees of Craft Freemasonry. However, relatively few brethren in Scotland then go on to join the Holy Royal Arch. Under the Scottish Masonic Constitution, the Mark Master degree can be received in two ways, either within a Craft Lodge after having attained the degree of Master Mason, or within a Royal Arch Chapter before taking the degree of Excellent Master. No one under the Scottish Masonic Constitution can be exalted as a Royal Arch Mason without previously having been advanced as a Mark Master Mason. English Royal Arch Masons will not be allowed into a Royal Arch Chapter in Scotland during a Mark working unless they also hold that degree, which in England is administered by a separate “Grand Lodge of Mark Master Masons”. The Excellent Master degree does not exist in England, and English Royal Arch Masons are not permitted to attend these workings in Scotland.
There are a number of other orders open only to freemasons, of which the Knights Templar and Red Cross of Constantine are particularly popular in Scotland. Membership of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite and the Royal Order of Scotland is sought after but tightly controlled and by invitation only. Bodies of the Order of Knight Masons, the Allied Masonic Degrees and the Order of the Secret Monitor also exist in Scotland, but have comparatively small membership. The Order of the Eastern Star, a Freemasonry-related fraternal organization open to both men and women, is currently gaining membership among Scottish freemasons.
