France’s centrist government is widely seen as out of touch with the common man, with the country’s young leader described as showing contempt for lower-income workers. “Farmers are denouncing the [government’s] arrogance and contempt for the farming world,” Mr Jacob, head of the conservative bloc in the lower house, told Le Monde newspaper when asked to comment on the office attacks. “This simmering anger was exacerbated by the approval of CETA: some officials have blatantly lied, telling farmers the free-trade pact will have little impact on the farming industry,” he continued, before slamming the government’s “inconsiderateness”.
