MACRON CRISIS: EU may NEVER be able to TRUST President again, experts warn

Speaking to Express.co.uk, Dr Oliver Davis, a reader of French Studies from the School of Modern Languages and Culture at the University of Warwick, said: “It seriously damages his reputation for technocratic competence and calls his political judgement into question.

“The fact that his government was clearly taken by surprise and thought it could tough out unrest but has now given way to it shows that he is not a good listener.

“This is how the government is already trying to present itself, after the recent U-turn, almost as psychotherapeutic listener attentive to the nation’s sufferings - but rather that he was not only rash in his earlier pronouncements but guilty of a major error of political judgement.

“This is without doubt the toughest challenge Emmanuel Macron has faced since being elected and probably the most serious political crisis to engulf France since the near-insurrection of Mai ’68.”
