the interview went up in the towers
Guest of the Face to face of Apolline de Malherbe on BFMTV this Friday, March 24, François Ruffin, deputy of La France Insoumise, somewhat lost his calm, pressed by the journalist about the start of fire in the town hall of Bordeaux.
The social uproar has reached heights in recent days in France. Since Prime Minister Elisabeth Borne used 49.3 to pass her reform aimed at raising the retirement age, a radicalization of part of the demonstrators is observed, to the point of pushing Emmanuel Macron to postpone the visit of the King of England Charles III.
The tensions that punctuated the ninth national day of mobilization certainly convinced the President of the Republic, despite the diplomatic repercussions of such a decision. Thursday evening, the entrance to the town hall of Bordeaux was even set on fire. A fire that was fortunately brought under control by the firefighters.
Seeing the opportunity to destabilize her guest of the day, Apolline de Malherbe attacked François Ruffin on this subject in her morning show on BFMTV and RMC. What does not have more with the deputy of France insubordinate of the Sum, who understood the objective of the journalist well. The elected official did not want to clearly condemn the excesses, who always prefers to place himself on the side of those he considers oppressed. “I am asking you about this image. Not on violence in general but on this image. It’s the town hall of Bordeaux!“, insisted Apolline de Malherbe, rewound like a pendulum, who is used to rubbing shoulders with politicians.

“You’re not going to make me repeat that 15 times!“
“You can ask me again the question: “Am I in favor of burning the town hall of Bordeaux?”, The answer is no ! It’s obvious“, reacted strongly François Ruffin, quite annoyed. But Apolline de Malherbe did not stop there: “What happens when the town hall of Bordeaux is burnt down?“.”What is happening ? But I tell you that I am against that! There is no doubt about it“, he replied.
Believing that he was relativizing the event, or was not going to the end of his thought, the journalist continued: “Stop for a moment on this, it’s the town hall of Bordeaux! And there was still the Lorient police station which was targeted, the windows of the prefecture which were broken, in Nantes , demonstrators broke into the administrative court… What do you say to that?.
François Ruffin then limited himself to saying that he was “not for violence“, before being taken back again. Which ended up annoying François Ruffin. “Listen to Madame de Malherbe, I have just said clearly what I thought of what was done at the town hall of Bordeaux, you are not going to make me repeat it 15 times !“.”I think it would be worth repeating 15 times“, replied Apolline de Malherbe.
And to say that they could have spared themselves all this weaponry, given that the abuses would rather have been committed by people affiliated with the far right, according to the first elements collected by Rue 89 Bordeaux.
