"Yellow waistcoats": "the debate, yes, everything, no", says Lecornu

The minister, responsible for local authorities, recalled Thursday the "unworthy things" expressed by some who claimed "yellow jackets": "the debate, yes, everything, it is not", launched Sébastien Lecornu, traveling in the Hautes – Alpes.

"We stop lies, insults, threats … with those who behave like criminals," said Mr. Lecornu on the sidelines of a visit to this department together with the Education Minister Jean-Jean Michel Blanquer at the association and local elected representatives.

In light of the great national debate arising from the crisis with "yellow jackets", "our job, the ministers, is to talk with the immensity of our fellow citizens who are reasonable people and want to help the country" and that "who he does not want to talk, "he told the press.

"We have to make a distinction between our fellow citizens, with or without a yellow jacket who want to discuss this country, their daily lives, taxes, purchasing power" and those who speak "unworthy things", like those preceding him by a woman, claiming that the state "would have led foreign gendarmes to gasify and kill French citizens".
