At the end of the imposed confinement, the President of the French Republic will be delivering a “founding speech” to evoke “potentially the suppression of certain reforms”.
While the Coronavirus epidemic ravages through France, Emmanuel Macron has already been preparing for the post-crisis. “He is quietly preparing a very big speech on the next world,” an important minister confided to daily Le Parisien.
According to information from the Ile-de-France newspaper, the Elysée is currently working on an important speech, which some say will be symbolically planned for July 14, once confinement is lifted.
It will be a question of sketching the contours of the “next world” and of evoking the “powerful” measures put in place to save the country from the economic and social catastrophe.
This “founding speech” will mark the end of confinement but also “the beginning of a new era,” says the same minister. It “will be accompanied by big announcements, potentially the suppression of certain reforms” , he added, citing “those of pensions and the public audiovisual sector” .
The president has allegedly asked many people to give him a written assignment on how they see things about post-containment. “He is very aware that there is a strong demand to regain control of destiny, ” explained a relative of the Head of State.
According to the testimonies collected by Le Parisien, this speech could endorse the major priorities of the world of tomorrow: safeguarding the welfare state, saving the economy, combating social inequality, purchasing power, setting up a “Green deal” and the urgent modernization of the health system.
According to information from the daily, an “anticipation cell” has even been secretly formed in Matignon, to reflect on these tracks on “the world after” .
It is undoubtedly necessary for Emmanuel Macron to use this speech as a way to prepare for his increasingly shaky political future. “We have to get out of all this with a huge programme, so as not to leave room for the populists,” argued an adviser to the president.
“People have not understood the extent of the economic crisis that awaits us! The fundamental issue will be the resumption of the fight against inequality,” he said. Macron has been known as the president of the rich.
In the Council of Ministers on Wednesday April 8, Macron said: “It is wrong to think that we will go from an all black world to an all white world.” Moreover, he also warned: “It will be a gray world. Do not think that there will be scenes of jubilation.”
Confidence between the French and the government has been severely damaged. According to a Odoxa-Dentsu Consulting survey for FranceInfo and Le Figaro published this Thursday, April 9, 76 percent of French people – more than 3 out of 4 – believe that the executive has “hidden the truth” from them about protective masks, both surgical and FFP2.
According to those polled, the government failed by “dissuading” the French from wearing masks “because there were not enough for caregivers”. This was evidenced by the order for 2 billion masks placed by France to China, to arrive by the end of June.
Only 23 percent believe that the executive has shown itself to be “transparent”.
In addition, an overwhelming majority of French respondents (72 percent and even 81 percent among those over 65) believe that “wearing a mask should be compulsory in all municipalities”.
The attitude of the government is thus judged as neither “coherent” nor “clear” by 77 percent of those polled. Finally, 73 percent consider that the Macron administration has not done “what needed to be done to equip carers and hospitals”.
And as reports on the effectiveness of a hydroxychloroquine treatment continue to leak in the media, Emmanuel Macron visited Marseille (Bouches-du-Rhône) to meet with Professor Didier Raoult, whose work on hydroxychloroquine as a treatment of Covid-19 has stunned the global medical community.
