I happened to mention to someone that I thought Macron to be Rothschild’s rent-boy…
Took some explaining to a Frenchman

But I think he’s a horrible little man

In answer to the question - no.

The GJ’s original idea was inspired and the support it received took the government by surprise, now however the violence and disruption is stupid (IMO) and will simply give Macron an excuse not to negotiate. I think most people here care but I guess just like EU citizens in the UK they’re powerless to stop the chaos.

Nope - wouldn’t dream of it! I’ve only ever felt intimidated once in my life - it was a Saturday in December 2018 at a roundabout ‘manned’ by Jilly Joneses. They lost any sympathy I may have had - right there and then.

One thing though - I know I’m really lucky to have only felt that level of intimidation once in my life - so far! :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

The revolt wont stop. les gilets jaune have gone too far to stop and have found freindship & humanity on the picket lines in a world where they thought they were alone

Yes, but they are french, they will soon go back to their various different & divided factions.

Gilet Jaunes blockages were the final straw

Pray, what is “the RIC”?

How lovely for you John. Was it a ‘bienvenue’ to the péage, or the roundabout, or the slip road, or France in general?

They stopped my car after I’d queued for 40 mins to get to ‘their’ roundabout where they were burning tyres and destroying the road surface whilst at the same time ‘enjoying’ a lovely buffet served from trestle tables - enormous fun! They made me wind down my window, they explained their grievances, they asked me to sign some kind of inane petition BUT…they were not at all interested when I asked them if they would mind me running though all of my problems and grievances. You know, basic stuff like cancer treatment and support, immigration from an immigrant’s perspective - that sort of thing.

Bad form :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes::stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes::stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:

There have already been protests against the violence and these will continue to grow unless the violence and damage stops, however I do agree with the OP in that the GJ’s are not going to give in any time soon.
