It’s a tragic case sure however Goddard and his yellow vested mates are still going on about this “justice for our boys” campaign where supporters are claiming that the case below was actually a jihadi murder which was covered up by the establishment.

Tommy Robinson was pushing that agenda for a while too. Seems to have gone very quiet about it now though.

Goodard is NOT the leader, or anything else other than someone who`s against the current political elite, George Galloway is a supporter of the movement, does that make it "Far left" ?.

There is no right or left, this is aimed squarely at the politicians carrying out an agenda that is against the interests and wishes of the British people.

Goddard is trying to push himself as the leader of the yellow vests in the UK and encourage his EDL/BF mates (like Danny Tommo) to get involved in it.

He's doing this so he can claim his campaign has massive support, by suggesting all yellow vest protestors are behind him.

Doesn't seem to be going too well for him though - most of the protestors are making it clear they want nothing to do with him.

That's a good read and paints a pretty interesting picture. Strong parallels with the UK Brexit vote.

The trouble is, with AI and robotics only just starting to revolutionise industry, skilled, semi-skilled and un-skilled jobs will be further eroded. Which really does beg the question of what on earth anyone can do with mass immigration, even if people arriving are relatively well educated. This is a situation where there are two dynamics working in opposing directions.

How many fully armed French Riot police does it take to beat up an unarmed French woman begging them to stop.

It appears to be 6.

I do hope that this goes viral in France, as it does demonstrate who the real Fascists are.

Ten W/E in a row, little to no coverage from the MSM over here as yet more major clashes with the riot police. Reports that there are forces from other EU states involved circulating, but can not find verification. There are however private security contractors working with the French police confirmed by alternative media.

Must say it comes to something when the live feed from RT on YouTube is a better way of gauging the story than the little coverage MSM gives. Thousands of people protesting in many locations is not fake news and surely deserves a decent mention in MSM?

Probably don't want us to get any ideas.

I think you’re right,the “elites” are getting worried.Look at how the protests are being played down,numbers wildly rounded down.
Everybody focuses on Paris,the real story is in Toulouse,Bordeaux,everywhere that isn’t Paris.

Difficult to verify for a reason?

I live in France. When it all started off and for a couple of weeks thereafter there were quite a few problems getting to the shops and schools were closed. Since Christmas the only yellow vests I've seen have been in the front of peoples cars and on cyclists.

On the other hand the media here of all sorts are reporting on it extensively as well as Macron's Grand Debat but strangely not as much about Brexit and nothing at all about the protests outside parliament. They must be hiding it from us. Oh no maybe it's just that it isn't the most important thing in our respective countries and maybe sometimes you have to dig in to the media reporting a little rather than being spoon-fed.

for me the article nailed why I voted leave. the elites have forgotten the working class exist. Rules from the EU without asking if we wanted it the Lisbon Treaty being the perfect example passed by a Labour goverment without asking people if they were in favour. Hipsters yeah that caring lot in their artisan bakeries, fixie bikes that cost more than a new car and mac book pros yeah they understand working class etc

Perfectly reasonable explanation 20 years ago. We've got wall to wall 24 hour rolling news channels now so desperate for something to report on that they'll drag in people from dance shows to talk to.

Don't get me wrong though, I wouldn't ascribe to malice that which is adequately explained by incompetence. They must be out of travel budget or I'd be looking for a flight to Greece if I were them at the moment.
