    Default The French Yellow Vests and Norte Dame

    IMO it will be only a matter of time before the Yellow Vest protest movement in France get accused of having something to do with the burning of Notre Dame. This burning has all the classic halmarks of a Problem Reaction Solution senario.

    The Yellow Vests have been a thorn in the backside of Macron for too long. What better way to give the final blow against the Yellow Vests than accusing them of burning down the catherdrial - similar to the burning of the Reichstag was blamed on communists.

    I bet you £100 monopoly money Macron doesn't blame the Yellow Vests.

    They wear yellow as a statement - They're telling the world they're cowards.
    I'll bet the all have white T shirts so it's easy for them to find a flag.

    Yeah sure...

    ...out on the streets standing up for their rights through 4-5 months of cold winter, putting their neo-liberal government under huge pressure, and they are still at it.

    ...what would be the British version of that?

    ...don't go out on the streets cos you don't want to be laughed at and/or can't be bothered, but perhaps write an irate letter to your MP, who will duly fob you off with some reference to some piece of worthless legislation, before getting on with your miserable life, grumbling and complaining the whole time to anyone who will listen?

    Well Bob, you could say that there are British versions.

    First, the huge protests by both the pro- and anti-Brexit lobbies, showing how much Brexit has divided Britain.

    Second, the "Extinction Rebellion" protests about climate change, but they don't get support on BC because everyone here thinks climate change is mumbo-jumbo.

    Going back in time, there were the poll tax riots that contributed to the abolition of that disastrous tax.

    In the UK we have a tradition of the "stiff upper lip", "mustn't grumble","be thankful" etc, but when people get shafted, they do rise up.

    Yes, "hi viz" vests are worn by people who need to be seen. These people don't lurk in the shadows, they stand up and are counted, and aren't afraid of it.

    They wear yellow for the simple reason that every driver in the country by law has to have a yellow hi-vis jacket in the car.

    That figures. I saw one with a set of bulbs and a warning triangle stuck to his head the other day.
