With the introduction of Macron (may last year) I remember reading ohhs and ahhhhs, generally positive outlook on a new, progressive way of running a country. 'Love the guy' 'a legend' 'wish we had him in our country' were spouted en masse, including on here. Some time afterwards, you get the horrifying pictures of middle-aged civils kicked and beaten seven bells out of on the streets, trying to protest. What's more worrying is that it doesn't get nearly enough attention from the media across Europe. Always seemd a fraud to me so I may not be the most objective but seeing watching the coverage from Paris is sickening. Happens in one of the biggest European cultures, yet not a word in some of the media. Ignored. It's not the first time since he took the helm, too. Seeing women with badly bruised and bleeding faces saying they were merely standing there after the policemen, acting on Macron's orders, started beating the shit ouf ot them. Can French posters on here shed some light on it? Can't find a thread, which is weird. Only Trumps and Putins when it comes to politics on here.
