“FOR the past week, France has felt like a country on the verge of civic insurrection.”
Violent strikes against labour reforms are causing chaos in France | The Economist
Brilliant way to start an article, only issue is, that isn’t what France has felt like. There are strikes and awful incidents but the vast majority of life goes on.
The issue is now I can’t read any other article in The Economist this week and believe that it’s true. Probably not next week either…
And so it goes on.
