Macron et le respect

Fort avec les faibles, faible avec les forts.



  1. Was Macron being deliberately condescending? Egotistical?
    I don’t think so.
    If you look he gives the youth two taps on the the forearm through the interchange. These appear to be almost affectionate, even respectful in a way. I don’t think they were scalding.
    Macron was endeavouring to impress upon the youth the solemnity of the occasion – they were there to commemorate the sacrifice of members of the French Resistance, whereas the youth was engaging with him in a jocular fashion.
    I would say Macron was genuinely moved by the sense of the occasion and peeved by the youth’s insensitivity. (I think the young man did get this, very quickly, apologizing.)

  2. I have been following what Piketty has said about Macron. It’s a pity that France has decided not to learn the lessons of Britain’s New Labour.
