Yellow Vest protesters back #GyroBleus police slowdown

Police around France have begun what are being called #GyroBleus protests. They say they are overworked and underpaid. And they are getting some support from Yellow Vest protesters. Another protest movement, meanwhile, is also gaining a head of steam - L'Affaire du Siècle - which wants to attack the French government in the courts so it respects commitments on climate change. And with Christmas approaching, we opt for a "Bah, humbug" approach, looking at depressing stats and shrinkflation.
