    I'm sure the optics may change, I somehow doubt the end result will improve much.

    France has now dropped the fuel tax rises from the 2019 budget.

    Round 2 to the protesters.

    Remembering that the French have a rich contemporary history of such collective actions....much more so than their Western peers.

    Interesting to observe.

    With Macron's popularity at 23%, more rounds to come for sure. The frogs are not happy.

    no, they are not, and Macron angle to work for the ultra rich is now showing despite claiming otherwise, he really fucked up bad, but he forgot who his real clients were, the electors, not the greedy corporation who paid for his dodgy campaign

    he has shown his hand in a party of poker, he is finished, he has no political capital left to engage into any meaningful reforms now

    can't believe he didn't see it coming with the fuel tax, that was the last drop, and he was warned amply by everyone

    game over, Macron

    it was nice while it lasted, but his burn rate was too high, and he got shot down midway

    I think it is time that Syria starts arming and funding the opposition in France to being about regime change.

    Good idea. Perhaps also some shoulder held grenade launchers for the 'moderate' opposition in the USA.

    Why the UN do not take any action like they have kindly taken in case of e.g. Venezuela?

    Because people who still think that the UN is a neutral benevolent organisation are fooling themselves.

    I believe Assad has offered to drop a few drums of Chlorine on Paris to replenish the local public swimming pools.

    One of Syria's partners has offered a few "intercontinental missiles". Purely on a "test flight" agreement.

    Russia, China, Hezbollah,Turkey, Iraq or Iran. All are/have been alleged to have suitable missiles available.

    Donald Trump.

    "I am glad that my friend @EmmanuelMacron and the protestors in Paris have agreed with the conclusion I reached two years ago. The Paris Agreement is fatally flawed because it raises the price of energy for responsible countries while whitewashing some of the worst polluters...."

    spot on.

    Yet more proof that our resident dipshit harry can not actually read or has the smarts to allow more than 1 piece of information in his peanut head at a time. #retard #sunshinebuswindowlicker #specialschooldropout #WhatADick

    metro station closed, tourist sites closed, and armored vehicles all over the place

    that should go well, hopefully
