Macron lectures UK on democracy while France burns every Saturday – George Galloway

French president Emmanuel Macron, who rebuked British MPs for failing to respect the will of the people after they repeatedly refused to accept Theresa May's Brexit deal, has been criticised for ignoring his own people.
Former UK parliamentarian George Galloway said that Macron's lecture came from a leader whose country was "on fire every Saturday”.

Macron, one of the European Union's harshest critics of Britain’s indecisiveness over Brexit, told a meeting of the European Council on Thursday that the result of the British referendum must be respected.

“We need to hear our people, we need to address their fears. We can’t play with fears, or simply tear up pages without offering anything else," he said.

But former Labour MP Galloway said that Macron’s own record of listening to the people was far from flawless.
