Two leaders, two crises tonight. Their futures at stake. For France's President Macron, the threats from the street. Thousands protesting Saturday, running battles with riot police, revolution the FRA. It's the start of a revolution? Si. Their targets, high taxes and Macron. Tonight he responded, promising the minimum wage will rise by more than a hundred dollars a month. The protesters have dismissed Macrons concessions as too little, too late. And they say they'll be back here on the Champs Elysees next weekend.
In Britain, protests against Prime Minister May over her controversial Brexit deal taking Britain out of the European Union. Today facing a huge defeat over it, she killed a vote. If we went ahead and held the votes tomorrow the deal would be rejected by a significant margin. This shambolic government. Unpopular leaders, uncertain times, two nations in turmoil.
When your survival is at stake, pleasure and pain will be strong motivators.
Could this be because India is surrounded by states in turmoil?
