France

According to the Guardian newspaper there have been serious clashes between riot police and firemen protesting about pension reforms in France.

I do not see this ending well.

Re: France

I thought Macron had already agreed to keep the system as it is?

Re: France

There is no love lost between the French and the police force especially the CRS. The Sapeur-Pompier on the other hand which is primarily voluntary is very much respected, and every Christmas they would go round the villages and towns selling their own calendars and for which we were always more than happy to give generously.

As you say @gleneagles this will not end well.

@Marksfish 

Reports that I've read suggest it's still being reformed.
