Those Gilets Jaunes Demands In Full

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Here’s a pretty kettle of fish.  None of it reliably ‘officielle‘, of course, because they don’t have leaders.  But no wonder Momentum are confused.

Question for A-level Politics students:  Categorise the following demands into ‘right wing’ and ‘left wing’, giving reasons.  (4 marks)

Economy/work: – a full review of taxation, with no citizen to be taxed at more than 25% of income; an immediate 40% increase in the minimum wage, pensions and benefits; “mass hirings” in the state sector to restore quality of service in hospitals, schools etc; 5m new homes; make banks “smaller” 

Politics: – France’s constitution to be rewritten “by the people and for the interests of the people”; lobbying to be banned; Frexit: France should leave the EU; recover euros80bn lost to tax evasion each year; halt and/or reverse all privatisations; removal of “useless” speed cameras; complete reform of education system, removal of all “ideologies”; quadruple budget of judicial system, which must be simplified, free and accessible for all; break up media monopolies and halt cosy relationship between media and political class; open media up to the people 

Health/environment: – 10-year guarantee on products to end planned obsolescence; ban plastic bottles; limit power of pharmaceutical companies; ban GM foods, carcinogenic pesticides, monoculture; reindustrialise France to reduce imports and therefore pollution 

Geopolitics: – Pull France out of Nato and foreign wars; end the plunder of French-speaking Africa; prevent migration flows that cannot be welcomed or integrated given current “civilisational crisis”; scrupulous respect of international law and engagements

I might even vote for some of those meself …
