Sure, it's very bad what the CRS do, and have done for ages. Then again France has a much stronger tradition and (to a point) toleration of protest than we do. Stuff that happens in France wouldn't be allowed to get that far.

But this is the same Macron who tried to raise petrol duty a while ago and got forced to back down by an unholy alliance, right? When Corbyn gets brave enough to propose that, get back to me.
and the likes of Bastani were happy to cheer on the gillet jaunes on without realising who they were or stood for.
There's kind of a clue in the question- are people going apeshit over fuel tax rises likely to be friends of the green left? It wasn't just about fuel tax, but that was a very big part of it.

Also worth noting that Macron is going to back net zero.

Bastani’s Scissored Isle. Aaron’s been traveling the length and breath of the nation and has of course discovered everyone hates Tom Watson

I'd vote for a Labour party led by Tom Watson, or someone similar. But not for one led by Corbyn.

Snap. Sooner that miserable empty-headed git, his puppeteers and his comfortable Trots fuck off the better.
