While appeasement was underway at the Palais-Bourbon after the debates were put on hold overnight from Monday to Tuesday, Emmanuel Macron has rekindled the powder. The examination of the bill on the vaccine pass was again suspended in the middle of the night on Wednesday because of the storm caused in the National Assembly by the president who said he wanted to “piss off” the unvaccinated.
“The conditions for a calm work are not met”, declared shortly before 2 hours the chairman of the session, Marc Le Fur (LR), announcing that the debates of this first reading would resume Wednesday at 3 pm.
“An irresponsible person is no longer a citizen”
“Unworthy remarks”, “insulting”, the elected opposition unleashed against the statements of Emmanuel Macron, multiplying the suspensions of meetings and requests for reminder of the rules, before demanding, in vain, the arrival of the Prime Minister Jean Castex, in a boosted atmosphere. It must be said that the presidential word was more than direct. “The unvaccinated, I really want to piss them off. And so we will continue to do so, until the end. This is the strategy ”, proclaimed the Head of State in an interview with Parisian. “When my freedom threatens the freedom of others, I become irresponsible. An irresponsible person is no longer a citizen, ”he added.
The boss of LR deputies, Damien Abad, castigated “unworthy, irresponsible and premeditated” remarks which fall under “childish cynicism”, while the president of the Republicans Christian Jacob “refused to endorse a text which aims to piss off the French ”. At the other end of the hemicycle, Ugo Bernalicis (LFI) denounced a “political crisis triggered by the presidential monarch, who allows himself to insult part of the French”. Mathilde Panot, president of the LFI group, estimated that the vaccine pass project now established a form of “forfeiture of nationality”, like the Communist presidential candidate Fabien Roussel.
On the government bench, the Minister of Health Olivier Véran tried to explain the presidential word, in a more civilized language. “The evil that is ravaging our country is a vaccination which, although important, remains insufficient”, with “millions” of unvaccinated, he explained. However, the tension has not subsided and 450 amendments are still on the menu for this first reading in the Assembly. The health crisis will also be on the agenda of a Defense Council and a Council of Ministers on Wednesday.
