Do you know what reserve of rage you just released


“, harangues Nicolas Mathieu in a fiery text published on Saturday on Médiapart, about the pension reform.

The writer consecrated in 2018 by Goncourt for

Their children after them,

addresses Emmanuel Macron and his government at length and with verve.

What about a president elected twice but without a real people to support his policy of managers, moneymakers and distracted retirees, his regime of senior executives and overpaid consultants, a president elected twice with the votes of his adversaries, who supported him less than used to prevent the worst, a president who was not even entitled to a quarter of an hour of grace in 2022?

he wonders.

Among the grievances held against the President of the Republic, the writer vilifies the forced passage of the reform and a form of amateurism.

“What can be said of a government that carries out reforms in which it hardly believes, that it pushes through with the forceps of 49-3, which messes up and gets bogged down, careless of disciplining its troops, incapable of bringing together the allies who missing?

Have you thought of those bent, twisted, overworked bodies, which will labor through your fault until illness, perhaps until they die?


Like a cleaver, Nicolas Mathieu's response falls: “

No, you didn't think about it.

Well that world is a slick of gasoline and you are just children with a box of matches

Saturday evening, on the program

Quelle epoque!

on France 2, Patrick Bruel deplored the choice of 49.3 to have the reform adopted:

“That this 49.3 is constitutional, that is not debatable, that it is addressed to parliamentarians.

But in this case it's not just the parliamentarians, there are the people who are in the street, who express themselves, there are people who are angry.

How can they not take this decision as an offense?

Something has twitched.

We chose a fracture, “

said the 63-year-old singer, who denounced an inappropriate schedule.

“The reflection that we can do is, was it obligatory to do it now.

Could we not postpone a little, shift, put the debate back on the table, renew the dialogue?

These words echo those of the writer Philippe Besson, close to the French president.

At the beginning of February, still on the set of Léa Salamé, he did not skimp on the words: “

I am very attached to the pension system as it exists today, to the distribution.

I think it is one of the pillars of our social model and that we must do everything to preserve it,

declared the novelist in the preamble before delivering the coup de grace.

(...) But for all that I think that this reform is the wrong reform at the wrong time, even the worst reform at the worst time.


However, expressing disagreement and presenting arguments has not always been so easy.

most certainly concerns you and also hits hard all the cultural professions of which we are a part.

This reform forces us to two additional years of work, which would further increase the risks of medical pathologies linked to our profession…
