Mainstream media line to portray them as anarchic thugs, nothing could be father from the truth, these are just ordinary people, joiners, postmen, butchers, the retired. The people are revolting!
The gilet jaunes movement is taking a break over the holidays, but judging by the strong online communal activity they'll be back with a bang in January. Back with a notional similar idea to take down the government and replace them with former general Christian Jean Piquemal, a guy in the mould of De Gaulle, a hard hard case chap who point blank refused to be part of the current Macron administration, when offered the top job with the French army. The British could learn a thing or two from the French. Already there are gilet jaunes movements started in Denmark, Belgium, Sweden, Canada and now Spain.
Talking about a revolution, its been a long time coming. A long time (since 1968).
Now where did we stack those guillotines...
I think that Rachel Parris got this right on the Mash Report abut the present se of the word "elite"
When you get Rees-Mogg, Farage, Johnson, (rather ironically) dismissing the Protestors for a Second Referendum as "Elitist Liberals" then you have to be careful...... and ask who the "Elite" are rather than the trite way it is used to dismiss anyone not 100% in support of Brexit
Just remember you are one of the "Elite" if you are more educated, earn more, have a bigger house than the person making the judgement.... a simple lesson found out by Danton, Saint-Just and Robespierre who suddenly found themselves being executed
