Can the European-wide movement of Yellow Vest be politicized? French supporters think so.
According to an Odoxa-Dentsu-Consulting survey conducted for Franceinfo and Le Figaro, 55 pecent of French people favor a “yellow vest” list for the European elections of May 2019.
Some 45 percent of respondents believe that the movement should not become political.
In France supporters of opposition parties are mostly in favor of this list, respectively 64 percent and 68 percent of respondents from leftist and conservative parties. Some 65 percent of conservative respondents support this transformation of the movement, as 57 percent of French people live in rural areas.
According to the survey, 78 percent of French people are in favor of the “citizens’ initiative referendum” requested by the Yellow Vests. Respondents are more divided about the “great national concertation” requested by President Emmanuel Macron, with one in two French (49 percent) saying it is “useless”.
According to the results of the survey, the French are increasingly skeptical about the ability of Emmanuel Macron to reform.
Some 51 percent estimate that Emmanuel Macron will not go “to the end with his reforms”. A loss of 11 points has been noted for the Head of State. Franceinfo, in a September 2017 poll, revealed that 60 percent of French people said that Emmanuel Macron would go to the end.
It seems that Macron’s administration is still not very interested in ordinary people. After the government’s announcement of a pay increase, police executives have expressed great anger.
Many police commissioners and police officers learned on the radio this week that the Minister of the Interior had granted a monthly increase of only 120 euros per month on average to police guards and officers.
“This is the first time in the history of the Place Beauvau, that negotiations take place without the presence of the representatives of the commissioners and officers,” says Marianne David Le Bars, secretary general of the union of commissioners.
“When I hear the minister say that it is a beginning of discussion on the reform of the Statute, it flabbergasted me. How can we consider reforming things without us? The 110 000 police officers are in fact led by 1 600 commissioners and 8 000 officers, and it is hard to discuss reform, which we all have been calling for for years, without involving the entire chain of command in discussions.”

Brits Forced to Live in Darkness and Cold
Food prices are rising at a furious pace, fastest in Scotland in almost half a century. At the same time, energy prices are at record highs.

We present the Swedish Public Health Agency's guidelines on indoor temperature. Governments in Europe are introducing rationing and monitoring of food purchases.
