victor.mallet@ft.com reports on the preliminary skirmishes, of the approaching 2021 election, in Macronistan. Political Cynic and friend comment.

As always ‘The Rebellion Against the Neo-Liberal Elites’ that takes place regularly, in France, remains unreported, in this newspaper! Its ‘old news’. What takes the place of actual, but inconvenient news, is the ‘Culture War’ French Style: It devours everything else, its very purpose.
Which takes the place of any real commentary on Macron’s abandoned, indeed failed ‘Jupertarian Politics’ . The ‘conviction’ of Sarkozy, home detention, shines a light, not just on a single French pol, but on the whole of Western Democracies problem of utterly corrupt pols, a glaring example: Joe Biden!

Thank you!? Three characters is the best an @FT reader can muster? Throwing down the gauntlet has it newest and most telling expression.

About stephenkmacksd

Rootless cosmopolitan,down at heels intellectual;would be writer. 'Polemic is a discourse of conflict, whose effect depends on a delicate balance between the requirements of truth and the enticements of anger, the duty to argue and the zest to inflame. Its rhetoric allows, even enforces, a certain figurative licence. Like epitaphs in Johnson’s adage, it is not under oath.' https://www.lrb.co.uk/v15/n20/perry-anderson/diary
