The poll, conducted by YouGov between July 9 and August 10, 2021, interviewed British adults to determine general opinions on key world leaders. The results will make reading uncomfortable for French President Emmanuel Macron, according to scathing polls on his native soil.

The YouGov poll results, which gave a clear rating to British adults who said they had a favorable or unfavorable opinion of key world leaders, put US President Joe Biden in the lead, with 27% approval from the British public.

Canada’s Justin Trudeau followed with 20 percent, and German incumbent Angela Merkel came in third with 15 percent approval.

Diving in the red, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who has seen a beating in recent polls, received a 22% disapproval rating.

Indian Narendra Modi followed with a scathing 23% disapproval rating, after a year plagued by disastrous handling of the Covid pandemic.

President Macron is next, with a shocking -35% percentage, with just Chinese Xi Jinping (-53%) and Russian Vladimir Putin (-73%) below him.

This deep disapproval of the French president extends beyond the British public, as other polling sites have shown.

The Politico poll of polls, which aggregates the results of numerous polling sites, showed that the French president’s disapproval rate on his national soil was at a low of 58% on September 1, with only an approval rate of 40 %.

Alarmingly, polls on voting intentions show that Macron is neck and neck with Marine Le Pen of the far-right National Rally.

With an eye on the polls, Macron is working to improve his attitude with voters.

This week, he announced his intention to inject money into the Marseille region to improve education, housing, transport and fight crime.

The French president spent three days in Marseille, the second most populous city in France, in an attempt to shed his reputation as an elitist Parisian leader.

He once said his love for Marseille knew no bounds and that he was a staunch supporter of his football club OM, but has so far avoided him and his party in the polls.

In a speech on Thursday, he said: “Marseille is at the crossroads of many challenges: climate change, geopolitics, migration.

“The nation’s duty is to be alongside those who live in Marseille.

With security already a major issue during the April 2022 elections, Macron visited a police station in the poorest northern suburb of Marseille and pledged to fight drugs and trafficking by increasing the number of the police. police.

Crime in the city has been a hot topic of debate in France since the start of the year after a wave of gruesome cartel and gang-related killings hit national headlines.

The city’s socialist mayor urgently called for more investment to try to tackle the root causes of the violence.

But the president’s woes extend beyond the problems at home, with political opponents accusing him of “recklessness” over the Afghan crisis.

Hauts-de-France president and presidential candidate Xavier Bertrand told French newspaper Le Journal du Dimanche that Mr. Macron had “displayed puzzling naivety” in the face of Islamist extremism since 2017.

He declared: “Given the dramatic conditions of the American withdrawal, France has lacked leadership. The Taliban’s seizure of power in Kabul is a turning point for world order and a tragedy for the Afghans. I am thinking in particular of the situation of women.

“We cannot forget the sacrifice of 90 French soldiers who died in combat in Afghanistan, which made it possible to protect our country against possible terrorist attacks.

“Now that the first emergency measures to repatriate our compatriots and those who have helped us have been taken, we must be very clear with the new Afghan leaders: if Afghanistan becomes again the rear base for anti-Western terrorism, if barbarism is developing there again, massive and rapid sanctions will be necessary.

In the latest investigation by the European Council on Foreign Relations (ECFR) into the political effects of the coronavirus pandemic on EU citizens, the French president was accused of imposing restrictions on citizens’ freedoms for reasons of reasons not disclosed.

Across the bloc, 43% of those under 30 questioned the use of the restrictions, and 20% said the blocks are an “excuse to control the public.”

But France and Poland also had large proportions of citizens who were suspicious of their government’s policies.

Among French people polled by the EU think tank, 20% said they were suspicious of the reasons for the lockdown restrictions imposed by President Macron.

And 24% went even further by admitting that they blamed the French government for using COVID-19 as a cover to increase its control over people’s lives.

The report said: “Bulgaria, Poland and France are also the countries with the highest number of accusers – comprising around a quarter of those questioned.

“When it comes to assessing the primary motivation behind the restrictions, the data shows that people who have been affected by illness or grief, and those who feel they haven’t been affected at all, have trust that the lockdowns were primarily intended to help limit the spread of the virus. “

The results also warned that another pandemic could lead to an even less united EU, with divisions emerging not only within member states but also between them.

He added: “In France, the pandemic has brought about striking changes in political philosophy in the main government and opposition parties. It is ‘non-binary democracy’.

“The crisis has prompted liberal supporters of Emmanuel Macron’s centrist political platform to support highly interventionist state action, with 89% of those who expressed an opinion believing that the restrictions were either fair or not tough enough.

READ MORE: Biden shows up late and says Afghan exit was ‘extraordinary success’

“Meanwhile, among current supporters of Marine Le Pen, whose party has often sought a more authoritarian state, almost a third (33%) of those who have expressed their opinion believe the restrictions were too strict and wish therefore that their party poses as a platform of freedom against the repressive power of the pandemic state.

“While 84% of Macron supporters believe the main motivation behind the restrictions is to limit the spread of the virus, only 41% of Le Pen supporters agree.

“Instead, 37% of Le Pen supporters believe the main motive for the restrictions is to control the public; only one in 20 Macron supporters shares this opinion.

“As the early stages of the crisis saw many citizens rallying to their national governments and EU member states move towards more cooperation, the next stage of the crisis could lead to more political divisions both within and between states. “

A fourth wave of COVID-19 infections is receding in France, but the government is taking a cautious stance as schools prepare to reopen after summer recess.

Vaccinations have resumed in recent months and people now need a health passport, or proof of vaccination, to access restaurants, bars, museums and sports venues.

Last week, France’s highest health advisory body (HAS) recommended a booster for people aged 65 and over and for those with existing health problems that put them at risk.

“People eligible for a recall have been able to make an appointment since Monday of this week. We see this as a real health requirement to extend protection, as some studies show,” the official said.

“We are talking about about 18 million people who are currently eligible for a third dose. We hope to see some 12.4 million receive this booster by the end of the year and the rest early next year. “

Government data shows that nearly 72% of the total French population had received a dose of a COVID-19 vaccine as of August 30.

Just over 65% had received two doses or one dose after being diagnosed with COVID-19.

There is no consensus among scientists and agencies on the need for a third dose.

Last week, World Health Organization (WHO) chief Tedros Ghebreyesus said data on the third shots was inconclusive.

He had previously said they should be stopped and authorities should focus on delivering doses to poorer countries.

However, WHO Europe director Hans Kluge appeared to be more positive than past assessments from the United Nations health body on Monday, saying booster shots were a way to protect the most vulnerable.

The ECFR results were based on an opinion poll in 12 EU countries that the European Council on Foreign Relations commissioned from Datapraxis and YouGov (Austria, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Spain , Sweden), AnalitiQs (Netherlands), Alpha (Bulgaria) and Szondaphone (Hungary). The survey was conducted in late May and early June 2021, with a global sample of 16,267 respondents.

Beyoncé became the first black woman to wear the famous Tiffany yellow diamond, in the jewelry company’s latest attempt to rebrand herself to a younger and more diverse audience.

The musician sports the ‘priceless’ 128.54-carat stone alongside her husband Jay-Z in a new ad campaign for Tiffany & Co. Beyoncé is the fourth woman and the first black woman to wear the diamond in addition to a century.

The ad rollout will last for a year and will include a short film in which Beyoncé will sing Moon River, a nod to Audrey Hepburn in the 1961 hit film Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

Beyoncé follows in the footsteps of Audrey Hepburn and Lady Gaga by wearing the famous jewel, which was obtained by Charles Tiffany after being discovered in South Africa in 1877. Lady Gaga was the third woman to wear the stone at the 2019 Oscars.

Gal Gadot will wear it next, in the much-delayed film Death on The Nile, which is due out next year.

The new campaign will also take over from digital billboards in Time Square in New York City, reports Women’s Wear Daily. Some campaign photos also show the Carters posing in front of Jean-Michel Basquiat’s Equals Pi, a 1982 work rarely seen in public, according to Tiffany.

The ads are part of a global campaign by the new owners of Tiffany, the French super conglomerate LVMH (which owns Louis Vuitton, as well as Rihanna’s Fenty line), to modernize its appeal to a younger clientele.

Millennials and Gen Z are now the biggest spending cohorts in fashion and luxury, according to McKinsey & Company. Z is the generation most “willing to pay a little more for products made by companies that share [their] values, ”according to Anita Balchandani, McKinsey leader in apparel, fashion and luxury.

Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s current ads have played out like an old-fashioned album campaign, but the first turning point in the company’s rebranding came in May when it launched its very first rings. engagement for men. The company called the seals a “bold, modern departure from the traditional alliance.”

In practice, the reason for men’s rings could have been the resumption of nuptials – it was estimated that 2021 would be the most important year for weddings in decades. But it was also a shrewd nod to the rise of men’s jewelry – led by gender neutral Gen Z icons such as Harry Styles, Lil Nas X and Connell of the BBC’s Normal People, whose chain necklace won her own Instagram page.

A few months later, in July, the company launched a poster campaign featuring two disgruntled, brooding-looking teens and Tiffany bling, accompanied by the slogan “Not Your Mother’s Tiffany” (other slogans included “This is not an old school “and” Tell me the silver date again … we challenge you “). The commercials, which recalled the controversial posters of the original 2008 television series Gossip Girl, attempted to standardize the brand, by pairing luxury jewelry (a sterling silver link necklace, which sold for $ 2,600, and a bracelet that sold for $ 1,575) with the relaxed denim style of the featured models.

But the Ok Boomer-minded ad sparked outrage online, including on the brand’s own Instagram account, with comments like “The name Tiffany is getting cheaper with this campaign” and “Tiffany had class… now it seems he’s losing this “.

The formula of pitting generations against one another is straight out of the playbook of the denim industry, whose debate over skinny jeans vs. baggy jeans dividing age groups has been the subject of much. advertisement on TikTok.

Over the summer, the founder of luxury marketing firm La Vita E Bella told The Business of Fashion: “A challenge for these heritage brands. [is] every time they try to get cool they end up alienating part of their core base… it’s a fine line that you have to walk, you can’t just get cool.

The new commercials, titled About Love, star in another ongoing soap opera: Mr. and Mrs. Carter. The ads continue to re-establish Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s public partnership. After the commercial and critical success of their 2016 album Lemonade (widely believed to be about the tensions in their marriage), the couple embarked on a joint tour and released an album, The Carters, as a duet in 2018.

Olivier Leprêtre, chairman of the Hauts-de-France regional fisheries committee, accused Dutch vessels of snatching traps from French vessels last week. In the latest incident in a long series of fishing rights in the English Channel, Express.co.uk understands that around 600 traps have been taken in the port city of Boulogne-sur-Mer.

An industry source said: “It’s controversial, the Dutch are launching our supplies.

“It shows a total lack of respect for other countries.”

The regional fishermen of Hauts-de-France are increasingly worried about the presence of Dutch vessels in the Channel.

They point out that they pose a threat to French vessels which see them as serious competition due to the use of unsustainable fishing practices.

A common practice known as fly shooting or pulse fishing is to use multiple nets to circle and catch schools of fish.

Heavy ropes are dragged across the ocean floor, which will displace anything below.

Mr. Leprêtre said Boulogne-sur-Mer was witnessing “the invasion of the Dutch industrial fleet”, which “overexploit the resources of the Channel”.

The European Union and President Macron have failed to secure pre-orders for the Valneva vaccine produced in France after talks with the company broke down earlier this year. But in another major boost for Brexit Britain, the jabs are being made available to the UK first. Boris Johnson’s government has reportedly secured an order for 190 million doses, with the first 60 million of the 100 million doses set to continue into the first quarter of next year, with the rest to 2022.

UK authorities also have the option of purchasing an additional 90million doses to be delivered between 2023 and 2025, pushing the total order value to £ 1.2 billion. The manufacturing process will take place in Livingston, Scotland.

But the EU and France failed to strike a deal with Valneva to deliver vaccine doses to the block.

Talks with the pharmaceutical company began in early 2020 but collapsed dramatically on the grounds that “the French company had not fulfilled the conditions” for marketing in Europe.

This infuriated Generation Frexit chairman Charles-Henri Gallois, who agrees this is “another big win for Brexit Britain” and perfectly illustrates why France should step up plans to leave the EU. as soon as possible.

He told Express.co.uk: “This is another big victory for Brexit in Britain.

“This shows once again that an independent country is much more efficient and agile than the bureaucratic EU.”

He added: “It’s hard to say if Frexit can arrive sooner rather than later as everyone is focused on the COVID-19 crisis, they may not see the connection to the EU and only blame Macron who is co -responsible.

“When we do the accounts, after the crisis, I think it will be great publicity for Frexit because the EU has handled it so badly.”

Mr Gallois also blasted the “terrible mistake” made by the EU in not being able to obtain millions of Valneva vaccines for the block, while calling it a “total disaster”.

He is also furious that Brussels is advancing the CureVac vaccine from Germany.

In late June, the company admitted that its jab was only 48% effective in the final analysis of its pivotal mass test, just slightly better than the 47% reported after an initial reading two weeks earlier.

The president of Generation Frexit blasted: “It is a terrible mistake and a shame for France.

“The obsession with having a European solution and the purchase by Macron is a total disaster.

“We had the deployment three months after the UK for Pfizer and AstraZeneca and the EU does not take into account this French vaccine.

“The EU does not want to order this French vaccine but in the meantime it has ordered many doses of the German vaccine CureVac which only seems to be effective at 48%.

“The EU is working for Germany and not for France. It’s no surprise.”

Speaking in April, after Valneva called off talks with the EU, the company’s chief executive, Thomas Lingelbach, expressed frustration at having “gone around in circles” without progress.

Weeks later, a dozen EU member states, including France and Germany, said they wanted to order the vaccines themselves rather than through the bloc’s supply system.

Valneva’s chief financial officer David Lawrence said at the time that the company “was speaking with various governments.”

He added: “We believe that our inactivated vaccine can make a major contribution to the ongoing fight against the pandemic and remain committed to bringing it to the market. “

French President Emmanuel Macron has had a varied first term since taking office in 2017. At the time, he managed to beat his rival Marine Le Pen by more than ten million votes. But recent polls show that his lead has recently narrowed and that he could have problems as the far-right candidate plans to run again.

Why has France turned against Emmanuel Macron?

According to the Politico poll, Emmanuel Macron is neck and neck with Ms. Le Pen.

They should each garner 25% of the vote in 2022, which shows a notable change in attitude among the French.

In 2017, Mr. Macron managed to secure 24% of the vote, while his rival lagged behind with 21.3%.

Last year people could buy petrol for € 1.23 (£ 1.06) and diesel for € 1.16 (£ 1), while now they have to shell out over € 1.59 (£ 1.37) and € 1.43 (£ 1.23) per liter from the second. week of August.

At first glance, this may not immediately seem of concern to Mr Macron, but one of the most constant complaints from French voters is the cost of living.

At the start of his first term, anti-government “yellow vest” protests erupted against plans to increase fuel taxes, and tensions persist three years later.

In 2021, protests also demanded that Mr Macron abandon controversial vaccine passport plans.

Politicians across Europe viewed this policy, which many saw as an attack on their individual freedoms.

The French president announced his bill on July 12 in a nationwide speech, calling them “extended health passes” that could help curb the rise in Covid cases.

The French have too much confidence in their bodies to care, says JUDY FINNIGAN – COMMENTARY

Speaking to France Info radio last week, a woman named Brigitte called the address “too harsh” and the health passport “a dangerous tool”.

As she prepared to walk again, she told the station she feared they would end up applying to more than health emergencies.

Catherine, a social worker, told the Daily Telegraph that she feels the French government is “micromanaging” its citizens and “seems to think we are stupid children.”

These aggravating issues could see people being pushed into Ms Le Pen’s arms in the middle of the April 2022 election.

His party, the National Rally, criticized plans to introduce the health pass.

But they stopped there, hoping to avoid joining forces with crowds of anti-vaccination protesters.

These factors have had an impact on Mr. Macron’s popularity, at least at the present time.

However, the polls do not estimate a loss for him.

The French elections are held in two rounds, and although Mr Macron may fail in the first round, he would progress alongside Ms Le Pen.

In the second round, the poll predicts he can garner 56% of the vote against 44% for his rival, a narrow victory that would see him lose 10% of his support from 2017, while Ms Le Pen would gain more than 11. %.

  • Since mid-July a total of 22 Covid centers disfigured
  • No major arrests have been made so far

PARIS, Aug.11 (Reuters) – Vandals have attacked more than 20 vaccination centers and other health facilities, smearing some with Nazi-themed slogans, as the French government steps up its COVID-19 vaccination campaign .

Anger has been fueled by the introduction of a health pass showing proof of vaccination or a recent negative COVID-19 test which is now required to enter restaurants, trains and other public places.

Over the past four weekends, protesters marched against the health pass, claiming it restricted individual freedom. Read more

Since July 12, a total of 22 health facilities have been attacked and degraded, including 15 vaccination centers, five COVID-19 testing centers and a medical laboratory, an Interior Ministry official told Reuters on Wednesday.

Across the country, vaccination centers and outdoor drugstore testing facilities have been labeled with swastikas and graffiti such as “collaborator”, “Nazi” and “genocide”.

The same slogans were also seen during some protests against health passes.

Last month, in the Loire Valley town of Neuille-Pont-Pierre, Stars of David – similar to the ones Jews were forced to wear by the Nazis – were painted on the signs of vaccination centers .

“We are cleaning up these horrors, it is odious. Other centers have also been affected by these racist and cowardly attacks”, declared the mayor of Neuille-Pont-Pierre Michel Jollivet on BFM.

In Lans-en-Vercors, in south-eastern France, anti-vaccine graffiti was painted on a community hall that housed a vaccination center and fire hoses were opened, flooding the facility, a reported the local newspaper Le Dauphine.

“Destroying a vaccination center says a lot about the motivations of the perpetrators, who will be hunted down,” Health Minister Olivier Veran said in a tweet.

In Urrugne, in the Pyrenees, the tent of a temporary vaccination center was set on fire, while in Audincourt, in eastern France, the power supply to a vaccination center was cut, putting in danger vaccine doses in refrigerators.

“There is no doubt that the vaccination center was targeted,” the mayor of Audincourt, Martial Bourquin, told L’Express.

Staff at a Toulouse vaccination center on Sunday found a note saying “One day this will all explode,” local media reported.

Home Secretary Gerald Darmanin has said the perpetrators will be severely punished, but so far no major arrests have been made.

France has recorded more than 112,000 deaths from COVID-19 and a total of 6.33 million cases.

After a slowdown in infections after France’s third lockdown this spring, the more infectious Delta variant has seen the number of new cases increase, now to more than 22,000 per day on average.

PARIS, August 9 (Reuters) – The French morning ritual of a coffee and a croissant became more complicated on Monday as people had to show proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test before sitting in their cafe preferred, although many restaurants are ignoring the new rules.

A health pass must now be presented to eat in a restaurant, drink in a bar, access non-emergency care in a hospital or travel on an intercity train, as part of a government campaign to contain a fourth wave infections.

President Emmanuel Macron unveiled the edict last month with a clear message: get vaccinated. Vaccination rates jumped as the French risked being denied some daily pleasures, but it also sparked a wave of street protests.

“It’s simple, we downloaded an app … so we scan the customers’ QR code, and if it’s valid, they can come in. And if it’s not valid, we can’t serve them” , said Romain Dicrescenzo, director of Café Vrai Paris in the Montmartre district of the capital.

He said he turned back dozens of people – some who forgot the pass as well as those who had not been vaccinated.

Cafe and bar owners caught flouting the rule face a warning followed by a 7-day shutdown order for the second offense. Two more tickets could lead to a one-year prison sentence.

Despite this, of the 10 restaurant and cafe owners polled by Reuters in Paris on Monday, half said they refused to perform health card checks. Police would take a lenient stance at first, the Home Office said.

Some other European countries such as Italy have introduced similar health passes, but France’s is the most comprehensive. Opponents of the pass say it infringes on their freedom and discriminates against those who do not want the COVID vaccine.

Data from the Ministry of Health showed that nine out of ten COVID patients admitted to intensive care at the end of July had not been vaccinated. A majority of French people support the health pass, according to polls.

Legislation governing health card requirements will remain in place until mid-November. It also requires compulsory vaccination of health workers.

Health card checks were also carried out at the Gare de Lyon in Paris. Checks on trains will be random and carried out on one in four long-distance trains on Monday, the transport minister said.

Cafe customer Issam Fakih, an oil logistics employee, said: “I’m a little divided on the health pass to be honest. I got the vaccine because in my job it’s important… Now the pass is something that is turned on my phone, so I don’t mind when asked. “

But he added: “I think it’s still an attempt to restrict some freedoms, but maybe some reactions are a bit exaggerated.”

PARIS, Aug. 7 (Reuters) – Protesters marched through cities across France on Saturday for a fourth straight weekend of protests, denouncing what they see as oppressive rules forcing health workers to be vaccinated against COVID-19 and citizens to have a health pass for many daily Activities.

In Lyon, police fired tear gas to disperse protesters throwing projectiles at their lines, TV footage showed.

Protesters also gathered in the streets of Paris, Nice, Montpellier and other cities, holding up signs saying “No to dictatorship” and chanting “Macron, we don’t want your health card”.

More than 230,000 people took part in protests across France, the highest number last month, the interior ministry said.

The protests have united a disparate group against President Emmanuel Macron’s legislation, which aims to help contain a fourth wave of COVID-19 infections spreading across France and protect the country’s economic recovery.

Among the demonstrators are far-left anarchists and far-right activists, vestiges of the anti-government movement of “yellow vests” which shook Macron’s leadership in 2018-2019, but also other anti-vaccine citizens or considering the health pass as discriminatory.

Vaccination rates have jumped after Macron unveiled his health card plans last month. Two-thirds of French people have now received a dose and 55% are fully vaccinated.

From Monday, people will have to present a health passport to eat in a restaurant, access non-urgent care in a hospital or travel on an intercity train. They are already needed to access swimming pools, museums and nightclubs.

Health workers have until September 15 to get vaccinated or face suspension.

“I’d rather not be paid than be forced to get the vaccine,” hospital psychiatrist Diane Hekking told Reuters as she demonstrated in Paris.

Similar health passes – which show proof of vaccination or a recent negative test – have been introduced in other European countries, but France’s laissez-passer and its mandatory vaccine prescription for health workers are perhaps the most ambitious.

Protesters in France accuse Macron of violating their freedoms and treating citizens unequally. The president asserts that freedoms come with responsibilities that include protecting the health of others.

Data from the Ministry of Health showed that nine out of 10 COVID patients admitted to intensive care at the end of July had not been vaccinated. A majority of French people support the health pass, polls show.

France’s highest constitutional authority ruled on Thursday that the legislation complied with the founding charter of the republic. Read more .

In the northern town of Cambrai, almost all restaurants and cafes have closed their doors to protest against the health passport requirements.

“We are not against the vaccine. We are against having to control our customers,” said bar manager Laurent Zannier.

In Poland, thousands marched to protest COVID-19 restrictions in the southern city of Katowice as the country’s government debated whether to impose restrictions on unvaccinated people.

Some carried signs saying “Enough coronapsychosis”, but no major incidents were recorded.

Poles are divided on the issue with several surveys showing support for restrictions on unvaccinated people between 43 and 54%, depending on the severity of the restrictions.
