“HARK! Hark! on yonder distant shore,
The noisy din of war I hear;
The sword’s unsheath’d—the cannons roar,
And Gallia’s sons in arms appear,
‘Tis France, ’tis France, the people cry,
Fighting for sacred Liberty.” Thomas Spence, 1794
A truly remarkable image of the Arc De Triomph with a vast crowd of angry French Yellow Jackets.
Notables on Macron 2017:
- Osborne: “The leadership that France needs.”
- D. Miliband: “[The] tribune for modernisation in…Europe.”
- Freeman: “A French JFK.”
- Cable: “I can offer the same formula.”
- Lineker: “Boy we could do with a Macron.”
Oh indeed to be so very wrong, in short a time.
