And I read the first comment on the article too.

It seems to me that the politicians, journalists and academics are talking among themselves in one sphere, relying on the accepted models of society while the underclass - to which to their own alarm the averagely paid cadre and small businessman now feel they belong - no longer pay attention to them.

There has always been a cleavage between the France d'en haut and the France d'en bas, but the latter seems to be losing its inferiority complex lately....it will be interesting to see if it gains enough confidence in itself to take action and, if so, what form that will take.

Of course, I'm not a politician, journalist or academic....my views are based on anecdotal evidence from the concerns of my friends and the forces and events they describe....
