Macron terms yellow vest leaders ‘hateful mob’ in combative New Year’s address
Emmanuel Macron last night delivered a combative New Year’s address, vowing to push forward with economic reforms despite two-month long protests from what he termed a “hateful mob”.
The French President, whose televised address was broadcast form the Elysee Palace, acknowledged that “anger over injustices” lay behind the yellow vest movement that has scarred his second-year in office.
He said: “Ultraliberal and financial capitalism, too often guided by short term interests, is heading towards its demise.”
