"Emmanuel Macron a donné son feu vert, ça va se faire rapidement": ce député LaREM est formel. A l'issue des élections européennes, la gauche "Macron compatible" va se structurer. Sous la houlette du ministre des Affaires étrangères Jean-Yves le Drian et de Didier Guillaume, le ministre de l'Agriculture, un mouvement de gauche allié à LaREM, inspiré de la formation "Agir" à droite, va se lancer.
A bunch of has-beens and never-wases, current or former right-wing members of the Socialist Party (think Manuel Valls, who has, thankfully, re-emigrated when it transpired that Macron wouldn't touch him with a bargepole) want to form a "Macron-compatible" vehicle on the "left", because they believe there is 15% of the electorate which is theirs for the taking.
The article makes an analogy with the Macron-compatible grouping on the right, "Agir", but that doesn't work... The bulk of "Républicains" are filled with admiration and/or envy of Macron who has shoved through reforms that they haven't dared to try in the last couple of decades. Les Républicains are now reduced to a rump polling 14%, of racists and authoritarians.
It is rightly acknowledged that people of faith have no monopoly of virtue

Otherwise, as we all know, Macron is neither on the left nor on the... left.
I used to be afew. I'm still not many.
