Whilst I like the way the French don't take shit on many things (they wouldn't tolerate a lot of whats going on here in terms of loss of freedoms), on pensions Macron made it pretty clear of what he wanted to do before he secured a second term.

Close to 16% GDP on pension is unsustainable, does the country want a credit downgrade? UK by comparison is around 6%. Important to remember only 11 years ago for many the pension age in France was reduced not increased.

Personally I'd have no problems with XR et al using the same tactics. We're soft in this country. Loved the number of burnt out speed cameras I saw during the yellow jacket protests.
  1. Burning rubbish, tyres, speed cameras, buildings etc etc.........not very environmentally friendly.​
  2. Will no one think of the asthmatic children who might have to breath the added toxins and smoke in the atmosphere.​
  3. (See previous arguments regarding flares and smoke bombs).​

  4. ps . dont press the ordered list function out of curiosity to see what happens when posting​
