The people who are in the group allowed themselves a little gossip about clerical matters when they were either meant to be talking about something serious or were with others who are not interested. More context would help.
Incidentally - what has this to do with "push and pull"?? [[Snap, Bob!]]
A little clerical talk was indulged in, interspersed by lady Selina's recognition of various friends and acquaintances, many of whom were not the people she thought they were.
As you see, I gave the context, please, help.
