Hello dear readers,

Olivier Véran decided that he had not yet decided. The Minister of Health will announce on Monday possible restrictions in the Paris region if the deterioration is confirmed by then. Then he will make a second decision a little later in the week if the resuscitation services continue to fill up in Lille, Lyon, Grenoble, Toulouse and Saint-Étienne. In view of the latest figures for the epidemic in these metropolises (the intensive care occupancy rate is 25%; 30% being the alert threshold), the author of this letter is “Very optimistic about the future of pessimism” (Jean Rostand).

The information of the day also comes from the Minister of Health: “The coronavirus is, as the name suggests, a virus.”

Have a delicious weekend,

The Figaro letter of September 29, 2020

Read this missive: to find out how much Trump paid in taxes in the year of his election, what the 2021 budget contains and why Anne Hidalgo is less and less dismissing the hypothesis of a candidacy in 2022.

Hello dear readers,

Any tenant of a Parisian studio spends as much money in his monthly rent as Donald Trump would have paid in taxes in the year of his election: $ 750. A «fake news» more according to the American president, after these revelations of New York Times. And then, scruples apply to those who have the time, he was the first world power to manage! While looming the first televised face-to-face between the two US presidential candidates on Tuesday, does this pan come at the worst time? For that to happen, this debate would have to be useful.

Go read the portrait of Alexandre Desplat, the most unknown of the French Oscar winners. The “little flautist from Montrouge” has become king in Hollywood.

Have a good Tuesday,

The Figaro Letter of September 23, 2020

This morning: the EU wants new rules to manage the flow of migrants, Édouard Philippe is thinking of a return, should Verlaine and Rimbaud enter the Pantheon together?

Letter from Figaro, your information meeting every morning. Le Figaro

Hello dear readers,

We knew about “European solidarity” (well, we have vaguely heard of it but we have seen it little). We have learned to discover “compulsory solidarity”. This is “à la carte solidarity”! This invented expression designates the new rule regarding the reception of migrants desired by Brussels: “You (the Member States) do not want to welcome refugees? Very well! You will have to go to the cash desk or take them back yourself to their country of origin ”. For some leaders, the transit of the pill promises to be complicated. To the point of derailing the scheme drawn up by the European Commission?

The advice of the day comes from Emmanuel Macron: “Faced with the virus: 1. Wash your hands. 2. Wear your mask. 3. Keep your distance. ”

Have a nice day,

Hello dear subscribers,

Will the second wave be an Arlésienne? The Directorate General of Health has doubts watching the curve in the number of contaminations climb as the days go by. The lights are not yet red but take on a funny color. Faced with this situation, the government’s strategy is singled out. The Scientific Council and a figure in public health in France are categorical: no, France is not doing the right thing.

In this Letter, you will find the account of the first week of the trial of the attacks in Charlie Hebdo. Go absolutely read it.

Have a great day,

Dear readers, hello!

A health crisis and an economic crisis were probably not enough. So, 2020 has in store for us a new joy: the threat of a global conflict against a backdrop of Sino-American rivalry. The verbal skirmishes between the two greatest world powers were followed by diplomatic and economic sanctions, as well as tensions in the South China Sea and in the Taiwan Strait.

In addition, read the article of our journalist Marie Visot. She answered the question you asked yourself when you heard about the Planning Commission: what is it for?

Happy birthday to Adrien and Beline. See you tomorrow!

Hello to you, dear readers,

If Athens once agreed with Plutarch (“patience has much more power than strength”), she has changed her mind. Since Ankara paraded its navy in the eastern Mediterranean to be able to exploit gas fields, Greece has shown its muscles. In this area where “The slightest spark could trigger a catastrophe” (head of German diplomacy), Berlin fears that Paris, support of the Greeks, is blowing on the embers.

The Greeks are starting to get used to seeing the Turks violate their territorial waters. Since Recep Tayyip Erdogan dreams of being a modern-day sultan, the land of kolokithokeftedes (zucchini fritters) has become Ankara’s favorite target, which places its ships in the Eastern Mediterranean like a naval battle game (without sinking anyone). either) in the hope of appropriating

Good morning all,

Turks, Qataris, Emiratis, Egyptians, Russians, French, but also Chadian, Sudanese and Syrian mercenaries … This long list is that of the actors in Libya. France fears the risk of escalation – she is right – and is afraid of seeing Erdogan take control of the territory. He could then threaten to send waves of migrants fleeing war into Europe.

This Letter contains other bad news, such as the increase in cases of Covid-19.

Erdogan’s dangerous game in Libya

A quagmire, a bag of knots, call it what you want, but the Libyan conflict is far from being on the way to settlement. We are even witnessing its “Syrianization” (Jean-Yves Le Drian).

Two camps clash, and do not make gifts. On the one hand, in Tripoli, that of the Government of National Unity (GNA) of Prime Minister Fayez al-Sarraj, recognized by the UN, and supported by Turkey
