    Just wondering why there's been very little media coverage of the absoutle carnage happening over the channel, maybe they don't want riots and police being overrun put into people's heads so close to Brexit..

      If by "absoutle carnage" you mean the few masked twats who break shop windows most Saturday nights on the Champs Elysees and end up fighting with Dibble, it's hardly world war three and maybe no worse than West Street at chucking out time on a Saturday.

      When was the last time anti-riot police deployed tear gas and water cannons on West Street?

      That might be the case in Paris but almost every town from Deippe down to Rennes has some sort of protest on roundabouts or road blocks. And of course no working speed cameras

      Macron was hugely popular when he came to power.

      Now, approval rating is down to less than 25%

      He's already had to backtrack on a lot of what he wanted to do (fuel duty increases etc.)

      The French have a history of protesting, powerful unions, and it's at heart a very left leaning society, very resistant to change in labour laws etc. but Macron won the election easily (not surprising as look at the options) so thought he could sweep in huge change.
      Thanks Robbie - one day we'll name a stand after you.
