Macron’s popularity crashes to its lowest EVER and lawmakers discuss vote of no confidence as violent anti-government protests continue across the country

Emmanuel Macron’s popularity has crashed to its lowest ever and lawmakers are discussing a vote of no confidence in the French President’s government amid fresh riots across the country today.

The 40-year-old head of state’s popularity rating fell below the 20 per cent mark as thousands of so-called Yellow Vests continued to demonstrate against his administration today.

Some 200 high schools were blocked or disrupted by students protesting a raft of education overhauls, on a fourth day of action. Dozens of people wearing face masks threw Molotov cocktails, torched trash bins and clashed with police in several cities during violent protests.
