I saw something about his approval rating being below Trump's.
No, you won't.
Treat everything the MSM tells you as entertainment only, not as what most people would consider "news".
According to Gallup last month, Trump was on 41% approval, 55% disapproval.
Macron was on 40% approval, 57% disapproval in March.
Presidential aide dresses up as policeman and goes out and beats up protesters...
Fuel protests... protestors killed... opinion rating tanking to mid 20s...
Macron looks like he's dead in the water.
If you put taxes up by a large amount over a short period of time (and on our recent visit there, we found they was as high as in the UK for the first time I can recall), you get protests.
If we leave the EU with no deal, I predict the consequent tax rises (& shortages) will make what's happening in France appear like a squabble in a kindergarten.
Did they get him with one of their water cannons?
Speaking of which, why didn't Sadiq Khan sell those unwanted London water cannons to Paris?
Maybe the Euro exchange rate priced them out of their budget range?
Officially the most unpopular President of modern times.
Sadly this will most likely lead to a spike in support for Le Pen... unless the French Left can get the ar**s in gear.
Good piece from a left of centre perspective [it is the Guardian after all] about the failure of Macron in the face of rising populism.
Macron was noone's first choice. He made the 2nd round by a kind of default and then had to be voted for to defeat Le Pen.
I admire the French for the way ordinary people protest. It gets things done. In this country we are still tugging forelocks to the toffs.
We need some of this on Oxford Street. That will stop Brexit.
You just keep tugging that forelock mate.
I don't actually that.
I do have some doubts about whether you are an active participant in street protest of this type or any type.
Well I am, though I'm not the rioting type.
These protests were triggered by fuel taxes if I recall correctly... so similar to the Blair protests back in ...2000? (Guessing)
Have to wonder if similar could happen here... fuel is stupidly expensive.
It will not. The government is investing heavily in its new and euphemistically named Resilience & Emergency Division.
I think you'll find he really doesn't - he just expect that others will do that when addressing him-
That's the spirit at Conservative Central office.
In the old days of working in the city things were different for him, but now he's moved up from delivering sandwiches to offices.
