But France has never been decentralized. The 80s decentralisation measures were superficial, and are being rolled back by stealth (exemption from municipal taxes, no right to establish taxes for regional assemblies, legal battles against universal competencies for the non-national strata...)

Sadly, France is decades away from any meaningful decentralisation. Macron is a Bonapartist, but the Constitution is Bonapartist anyway.
