Two days after the passage in force of the new pension reform by Elisabeth Borne, Patrick Bruel took advantage of his arrival on the set of Quelle Époque, this Saturday, March 18, to give a big rant. However, the singer has always claimed to be a voter of Emmanuel Macron.
Elisabeth Borne’s government is increasingly isolated. After several weeks of demonstrations throughout France to protest against the pension reform project, many inhabitants of France were left speechless on Thursday, March 19. The reason ? The Prime Minister did not even bother to submit her reform to the votes of the National Assembly, but preferred to appeal to 49.3 to validate it by force, causing real chaos among the deputies.
A few hours later, Elisabeth Borne was invited to the set of the 8 p.m. newspaper of TF1, in order to explain the incredible political situation that this has generated. “I wasn’t mad, but I was very shocked. I don’t think it was necessarily heard in the microphones but when you have screams…”. Since then, the inhabitants have continued to organize demonstrations in the largest cities of France to make their discontent heard.
Patrick Bruel: “The government has chosen a fracture”
A situation that did not leave Patrick Bruel unmoved. The singer, who has already admitted to having voted for Emmanuel Macron, is also angry at the way the government has managed this reform. Invited on the set of Quelle Époque this Saturday, March 18, Patrick Bruel wanted to explain the substance of his thought. “Was it mandatory to do it now? Couldn’t we wait a bit, shift, put the debate back on the table, renew the dialogue. Whether 49.3 is constitutional, is that not debatable? I think it might have been interesting, in any case useful, to calm things down, to put the debate back on the table. Something has twitched. We chose a fracture.”
