the opposition denounces a France on the path to the “third world” – RT in French


While the executive is preparing for power cuts at the height of winter, which has not been seen in France for decades, the opposition is firing red balls at the governance choices that led to this situation.

While the prospect of scheduled power cuts at the height of winter is being considered, the opposition sees in this situation an unprecedented downgrading of France, where energy supply is traditionally guaranteed.

“France is not content to welcome the Third World: it is becoming the Third World”, mocked the leader of the Reconquest party Eric Zemmour.

The Gaullist Nicolas Dupont-Aignan abounded in the theme of the Third World: “Being in 2022 and not being able to provide electricity to its population… We have become a Third World country”, he was indignant .

On the National Rally side, the same type of speech was made by the president of the political party Jordan Bardella.

“A little political reminder so that the French know who to thank – in particular – when we are going to cut off their electricity this winter. Presidents François Hollande and Emmanuel Macron who gave in to the “ecologists” should not be forgotten in our warm thanks”, for his part declared the magistrate and former UDI legislative candidate Charles Prats.

“The French will therefore bear the full brunt of the consequences of the political games of the left for so many years in 2022/23… And the war in Ukraine will not have much to do with it,” he wrote again. in another tweet.

But the criticisms were not limited to the right: “Imagine, you live in the 6th economic power and one morning no electricity, schools closed, you have to choose between looking after your children and receiving your salary”, wrote the LFI deputy Caroline Fiat, who denounced “the decline of France, 5 and 1/2 years after the arrival of Emmanuel Macron”.

“In France, the 6th world power, we are at risk of power cuts, our public hospital is saturated, prices are constantly rising! Everything cannot be blamed on the war in Ukraine!” added his colleague Alexis Corbière.

“Aberrant threats of power cuts in schools: we hesitate between energy incompetence or political cynicism to make energy price increases acceptable”, declared the former socialist presidential candidate Ségolène Royale for her part. .

The government of Elisabeth Borne has presented a series of measures to deal with possible power cuts this winter, due to historically low production from the nuclear fleet, which are worrying users. Power cuts will be programmed and targeted (two consecutive hours maximum with load shedding confirmed the day before) in the event of an overload of the electricity network, which would be “unprecedented” in France according to RTE.

Emmanuel Macron mentioned the possibility of power cuts on December 3, declaring that these could be avoided if consumption was reduced by 10% according to the plan presented by the government. “Don’t panic, it’s useless,” he tried to reassure TF1 at the end of his three-day state trip to the United States.

“If all together we stick to the sobriety plan that has been presented by the government, that is to say to reduce by about 10% compared to our usual consumption […] so yes we will be able to pass even with a cold month of December and January this period, it depends on us”, he still assured.
