Pensions: the left mocks the postponement of the visit of Charles III


The visit of the British monarch was already the subject of criticism from part of the political class.

Like a gift offered on a silver platter.

In the midst of a challenge to the pension reform, and the day after a day of massive mobilization, the arrival of the King of England Charles III scheduled for Sunday evening in France was finally postponed.

Barely the news formalized by the Elysée, the left hastened to seize it to divert its meaning.

From the middle of the week, the ecologist Sandrine Rousseau, then the Insoumis Jean-Luc Mélenchon, had pointed out the discrepancy between the visit of the British monarch and the French social climate.

For the LFI leader, this was not the “

right time



King, listen, we have nothing against you here.

You're the king of the English, that's your business, but us Versailles, how's it going... Anyway, that's how we're going to end the week


And it doesn't look like anything?

“, he had questioned.

The moment seemed all the more inappropriate since the inter-union decided, Thursday evening, of a new day of mobilization scheduled for Tuesday, March 28.

An anthology of comments on the left

On social networks, the same Jean-Luc Mélenchon therefore commented on the postponement decision in these terms: “

The meeting of kings at Versailles dispersed by popular censorship.

The English know that Darmanin sucks at security.

“All in an allusion to the incidents that occurred at the Stade de France last May, when the Minister of the Interior first blamed the English supporters of the Liverpool team for the excesses observed.

Before finally apologizing a month later.

Others, in the ranks of the left, wished with irony to see a possible turning point in the line of the executive.


Like what, Emmanuel Macron has found the reverse

", for example wrote on Twitter the communist Fabien Roussel.


Charles III has backed down, Macron will back down

," added the rebellious Manuel Bompard.

Since he no longer receives the King of England Charles III, Macron can receive the intersyndicale now?

“, can we still read on the account of the deputy LFI Alexis Corbière.

The ecologist Julien Bayou also took the opportunity to demand the "


" of the reform, and to castigate

the "obstinacy

" of Emmanuel Macron who, according to him, does not allow "

to welcome with dignity one of his closest allies


And the vice-president of the National Rally, Sébastien Chenu, to see it “

another consequence of the stubbornness of Emmanuel Macron.

Wanting to impose its reform is a cluster bomb that damages all sectors and all subjects.


On BFMTV, Sandrine Rousseau, for her part, judged the postponement positively, considering that it was "


" to "

make this visit in the midst of a social conflict of historic magnitude, to go and eat at

Versailles, to go down the Champs-Élysées


Nothing was going well, and above all what image and what sign does Emmanuel

Macron give of his presidency?

He is more interested in sharing a glass of champagne with Charles III rather than listening to his people

, ”she then denounced.

Before finding "

respectful of the social movement

" this choice of the Presidential Palace.

The president of the Republicans, Éric Ciotti, for his part considered it “


” that this visit was canceled “

due to social unrest


Writing: “

What an image for our country to not even be able to assume the security of a head of state.
