Repeal of the pension reform: “Free spirits” are “dismissed” and “nags” are “on the ground”

“Free Spirits” are “discarded” And “the nags” are “in the field”deplores François Ruffin, the day after the deletion by the deputies in committee, of the key article of the Liot bill, repealing the decline in the retirement age to 64 years. “All shenanigans are good” And “they are doing everything to prevent this vote from taking place”, he continues. The battle is not “no way” lost, assures the deputy of the Somme.

“Emmanuel Macron’s record against the RN is three million more votes for the far right”

François Ruffin also returned to the tensions within the executive after the words of Élisabeth Borne, for whom the RN is “the heir of Pétain“. “Emmanuel Macron’s record against the RN is three million more votes for the far right after Emmanuel Macron’s first term”says the rebellious MP. “Perhaps before giving lessons, there is a certain questioning that is necessary.” For Francois Ruffin, “Emmanuel Macron advocates a division of society that feeds this”. And, he says, “there is no fatality in the fact that it is the extreme right which in France has never come to power through the ballot box”.

Inflation: we must block “prices for three months” and “unblock wages”

“We have to freeze prices for three months” and one “salary release”, especially for low and medium salaries, argues François Ruffin. Consumer prices are up 5.1% year on year in May, according to INSEE estimates, while they had increased by more than 6% at the start of the year. The rebellious deputy “don’t believe at all” to the success of the government’s anti-inflation plan and speaks “from a drop in the rise, +5% for a year is still not nothing”. Today, “What is our project? Lionel Jospin said in 1983 ‘we are opening a liberal parenthesis’, today the objective is to close it”, launches François Ruffin.

“Seasonal plan”: François Ruffin wants “free” campsites for students who work in the summer

In response to “seasonal plan” of the government, the rebellious deputy proposes “bits of camping on all the campsites on the coast”. And detail his idea : “the students can go there, they will be waiters in the brasseries and the hotels nearby and they have a little place there where they can play the guitar late at night”. For him, “We match the needs of hoteliers with those of students”. The rebellious MP assures us that we “solves the housing problem like this”. “On the other side, there is a guarantee from hoteliers to say ‘I will pay them 2,000 euros a month and the students return in September with 4,000 euros to start their studies’. He claims it is a “a frighteningly simple plan and yet nothing is implemented, the government lacks pragmatism”.
