[Édito] Macron in neo-Gaullian style – Debates
Accountant of the national interest before History, freed from electoral constraints, Macron assumes, without pleasure he says, his pension reform, noting that he is quite alone in assuming it because few are those who, according to him , take responsibility. The storms which rise and which will have marked his two mandates are linked. Shaken since 2017 by globalization, war, the health crisis or climate change, he invokes the principle of reality that his fellow citizens would find difficult to perceive. Actor of a drama – our downgrading – which goes beyond him but of which he does not resolve to be a simple spectator, he reaffirms his will to act. Even if it means being accused of adding fuel to the fire rather than playing appeasement. In fact, the reactions of its many opponents, from unions to left-wing parties, remain hostile. We hear “contempt”, “denial” or “lie”! The question is not to know if he convinced, today probably no more than yesterday, but if he can bounce back to get out of a splendid isolation. For the time being, the head of state denounces the rebels who threaten the republican order. The enemy is designated, it is La France insoumise whose excesses in the Assembly have overflowed into the street, as the Prime Minister has pointed out. But comparing peaceful protests to the Capitol insurrection, isn’t that daring? Summoned to widen her majority when she failed to do so with Les Républicains, Élisabeth Borne appears on borrowed time. Unless she saves her head by replacing the dummies who, by her own admission, accompany her with a fighting government. It will avoid the most controversial bills such as the one on immigration that has been postponed indefinitely, to relaunch the theme of value sharing in the hope that the expiry of the decision of the Constitutional Council will provide it with some respite.
