Voice Of Europe
December 6, 2018
A French journalist from The Guardian has called on people to help France’s weakened and beleaguered President Emmanuel Macron instead of showing hatred or scorn over the “gilets jaunes [yellow vests]predicament”.
Whilst she admits he’s made errors which have given life to the feeling that they were ‘the invisible’ being treated with contempt by Parisan elites, she predicts that this could give rise to “extremists” who are seeking “a political takeover of Europe in next May’s European Parliament elections”.
She considers this the greater evil, not just for France but the entire continent. “Just as a weakened Merkel didn’t do much to help Macron in relaunching the European project, a weakened Macron will now provide new fodder for extremists and populists across the continent.
If we don’t find solutions, the EU election in France risks becoming a referendum against Macron”, her article states, warning that anti-establishment and right-wing forces are waiting in the wings.
