Macron plan for French suburbs slammed as insufficient 23.5.2018 General News
French opposition parties and media today slammed President Emmanuel Macron's plan for tackling urban poverty, saying the proposals unveiled a day earlier lacked ambition and were just for show. Macron's plan for improving the lives of around five million people in 1,300 poor neighbourhoods, including the high-rise, largely immigrant suburbs of Paris, had been keenly awaited. From creating more places in daycare centres for children from poor families to giving youngsters internships in big French companies, he pledged a change of tack to "emancipate" inner-city and suburban youth. But the announcements, which came with no funding attached, fell far short of the mark for opposition parties, local officials and media. The leader of the main opposition Republicans (LR) party, Laurent Wauquiez, told LR lawmakers that Macron was the champion of "Kodak politics" focused on image-making which consisted of "talking and doing nothing". The mayor of the Bondy suburb in Paris, Sylvine Thomassin
