The political brief

Will France's tough new counter-terrorism law erode civil liberties?

The French National Assembly has adopted a tough new anti-terrorism bill. The law is designed to end the country's two-year state of emergency, but civil liberties defenders are concerned. Meanwhile, after the deadly terror attack in Marseille, opposition conservatives lash out at the government for its response to terrorism and illegal immigration. And man of the people or president of the rich? Emmanuel Macron's plan to slash taxes for the happy few is not going down well.
