Doesn't look like Macron can do anything to soothe the vests.

Emmanuel Macron’s government is to put the sclerotic French labour market at the heart of its plans this year, after months of gilets jaunes protests that have heaped pressure on the president to deliver tangible improvements to living standards.

Muriel Pénicaud, labour minister, said in an interview that the protests were “both a danger and an opportunity” and would spur rather than discourage attempts at reforms.

More jobs, better rewards for those in work and more efficient government spending are precisely what some demonstrators want, Mr Macron and his ministers have argued.

The gilets jaunes demonstrations began last year as a motorists’ protest against green taxes on fuel and developed into a broad anti-Macron and anti-establishment uprising, marked by weekly marches through French cities.

A chastened Mr Macron has reversed the green tax rises and delayed reforms to the civil service to appease protesters while he hosts a “ big national debate”.

Advisers to the president say few protesters have taken issue with his government’s labour plans. But they acknowledge that the state of the jobs market will become a test of Mr Macron’s policies.

Agree.

I think it was doomed to fail because socialist experiments don't work with individuals in communes. The same was predictable with countries that all had different strengths, weaknesses, cultures. Short term might be rough for the UK, but a clean break will be good in the long term.

Yellow Shirts are moving ahead in Australia as well.
Maybe another train of thought to examine.

The citizenry has to be forced to like socialism and globalism. If it was so great, the rabble would run to it.

scene is set for an almighty punchup between the red shirts and yellow shirts

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-47022456

A group calling itself the red scarves has held a march in Paris to counter weeks of anti-government protests by the yellow-vest movement.

The "foulards rouges" are demanding an end to the violence witnessed at yellow-vest (gilets jaunes) rallies.

The gilets jaunes movement grew out of fuel tax protests in November.

It now embraces wider discontent with President Emmanuel Macron and has seen some of the most serious street violence in Paris since 1968.

But the weeks of TV footage showing clashes with riot police and damage to public monuments have triggered a counter-movement. The red scarves now have about 21,000 followers on Facebook.

More than 10,000 people took part in Sunday's march, Le Figaro reported.

"People are tired of the roadblocks. They are bad for business, and children are prevented from getting to school on time," red scarves spokesman Alex Brun told French broadcaster RFI.

Ahead of Sunday's rally in Paris, the red scarves put out a joint statement with similar-minded groups.

"We denounce the insurrectional climate installed by the yellow vests. We also reject the threats and constant verbal abuse (aimed at non-yellow vests)," they announced in a joint manifesto.

IMO the French are ignorant about how socialism draws upon the wealth of the nation to support socialism.
