Macron vs. French Culture
Jean-Louis Gassée

… and again, you paint France as ungovernable, because Mr Macron is unlikely to have a majority at the legislatives. But this is the normal situation in Germany, Belgium, Holland, etc … and noone thinks of describing these countries as ungovernable !

Although this is not in the tradition of our political life this last century, deputies will have to learn how to negotiate to come up with compromises, and the French who are not stupid will like it (the same way as they liked “cohabitation” between opposing President and Prime Minister).

I prefer you , Jean Louis, with your Californian optimism, rather than with the “béret and the baguette”, again !

I am not a Macron supporter, but I wish him to succeeed, and there is no reason to decree a failure !
