Former Prime Minister Édouard Philippe “shares like a good majority of French people the idea” of Emmanuel Macron on the unvaccinated, which sparked a controversy, but spoke on Wednesday in favor of compulsory vaccination.
“The non-vaccinated, I really want to piss them off. And so we will continue to do it, until the end. That’s the strategy,” said the head of state in an interview with the Parisian published Tuesday, again igniting the debates on the vaccine pass in the Assembly until a new suspension of the examination of the text. Opponents from both left and right denounce “insults” which “divide” the French.
A new health defense council is due to take place this Wednesday from 9:30 am.
The examination of the bill on the vaccine pass was again suspended in the middle of the night Wednesday because of the chaos caused in the hemicycle by the words of President Macron saying he wanted to “piss off” the unvaccinated.
