Power doesn't come from tear gas or rubber bullets, it comes from the people.

The French people have spoken and deserve their voice to be heard.

Maiden has hit Paris and it's time for the government to relinquish power to the Yellow Vests who represent the voice of the people.

@sourpuss = Do you seriously believe it makes a difference who you vote for in a so called 2 party democracy sham ? You need to wake up buddy

When was the last time you heard a Western democratic politician speak the truth about anything that really matters ?

Peaceful and mannered Britain is a misinterpretation, we have moved from periodic rioting in the 18th century to voting but politics has always been a rumbunctious affair, The French people have always resorted to direct action, so the current stramash is just a slightly more extreme form of the norm.

It is only the middle class bubble dwellers who see this as anomalous, the reality is that it is these very same people who have created the problem by wilfully ignoring the reality out side their comfy bubble.
