Apart from their opposition to the carbon tax, this lot are typically left wing.
I wonder are they? The left crave, renewable energy, electric cars and carbon taxes. One of their US politicians Ocasio Cortez has predicted the world will end in 12 years from climate change. This protest started with the carbon tax remember. There cannot be anything more socialist than that.

If the French people are prepared to protest at this level in foul winter conditions.
What numbers will come out as it gets warmer and the day's longer.?
Going to be a long spring for Macaron.

I can't help thinking that Macron's comments about Nationalism in November (compared it to leprosy) fanned the flames of these protests.
Why pay even more taxes if you are told not to give a shit about your Nation by your Pres?

The real chance of Salvini becoming P.M of Italy and Le Pen becoming President of France is no longer pie in the sky.
That is a very good point. If you consider why the British made such an effort during the war in order for their country to survive, if that effort was going to benefit Germany or Italy, they would not do it. If a citizen works for himself and his country he will eventually begin to see the benefit in better wealth and services. They used to vote with that in mind.

Now the election promises are not for the citizen, they are for the citizens of far off lands and far out cultures. So why work, fight or vote for that? ?
