No First Lady for France: Petition against Brigitte Macron gains momentum

IN THE FRENCH PAPERS, Monday, August 7: Emmanuel Macron slips seven points in the polls, with just 36 per cent of people saying they have a positive view of the president. L'Opinion says this is due to the lack of experience of Macron's MPs and ministers. Meanwhile, The Huffington Post reports that over 150,000 people have signed a petition to stop Brigitte Macron from becoming the official "First Lady". We end with Paris's efforts to clean the river Seine ahead of the 2024 Olympic Games.
