END OF MACRON: French president faces NO CONFIDENCE vote TOMORROW – France in chaos

Mr Macron’s leadership is hanging by a thread after the Yellow Vest protests posed the most formidable challenge yet to his presidency. Leftist MEPs said Thursday’s vote is the result of 18 months of fiscal injustice and called on the French president to “radically change direction”.
