“How do you want a country driving where there are 258 different types of cheese exist?’, left Charles de Gaulle airport is ever lost. The French are lovers of intense political and ideological debate in which they like to disagree with each other – and especially with their politicians.
In his press conference Thursday night, said Macron that this talent to be ” constantly about everything, to argue’ part of the ‘art of Frenchman’. But it also makes life difficult for politicians: French presidents are usually more popular than during their term of office.
Back to the front
Various leaders of the cardigans jaunes responded to negative and announced that the demonstrations continue. Except the next Saturday, also Wednesday 1 may marked in their calendar. “He has not listened to what we are already five months on the street say,” said Maxime Nicolle. “He has just a few crumbs of bread handed out, such as re-indexing of the pensions.’
The cardigans jaunes not happy, not surprisingly. On three of their essential requirements was the president not in: the ability to volksreferenda to organize, the reduction of the vat and the reintroduction of the rijkentaks. It would be no surprise if the rise between today and the European elections at the end of may again increase. ‘We go back to the front, ” said a woman from Normandy to the news channel BFM TV.
Majority not convinced
Now was the press conference of Macron is not so much intended as a response to the protests of the yellow shirts, as well as on the concerns of the French, as emerges from the great national debate. At the top was the high tax burden. That is why there is also a reduction of the income tax in value of 5 billion euros from 2020 onwards for all those who do not succeed at the end of the month, make ends meet, ” said minister Gérald Darmanin. It was going to be a drop of around 10% for 15 million families out of the middle class.
From a first, quick poll for the newspaper Le Figaro indicated that a majority can share various concrete proposals that Macron Wednesday night did: the possibility of less than 120,000 ambtenarenposten to delete (65%), the re-indexing of pensions below 2,000 euro (84%) or no closures, more schools and hospitals (86%).
Still says 63% of the respondents believe that Macron them could not convince, and is 65% that measures their expectations are not meet. Six in ten note that there is no evidence of a change of course since the beginning of his presidency in may 2017.
“The method changes, the price of the policy, summarised the newspaper La Croix, the end result well together. Macron promises to be a more humane policies and more consultation with the civil society and the local administrations. But he emphasized repeatedly that there is no other policy. ‘Should we stop with what we have in the past two years have done? On the contrary, ” said Macron. The reforms still need to be strengthened.
Symptomatic is the fact that the president insists on the abolition of the rijkentaks. The poll by Le Figaro, indicates that six in ten French people this is a bad thing. But according to Macron is not a gift for the off, as there is in place a tax on the property portfolio; the measure should encourage investment in the real economy, encourage job creation and more French people to work, help. There has been and continues him to do.
