President Emmanuel Macron should ignore his critics and continue to enjoy drinking wine
President Emmanuel Macron has ridiculously been accused of “putting French lives in danger” by admitting to drinking wine at lunch and dinner.
In yet another example of political correctness gone wrong, a gaggle of busybody doctors berated Macron for his habit and stated: “Wine represents 60 per cent of the consumption of alcohol [in France and] kills 50,000 people per year.”
Aside from brushing aside “calls for a national alcohol plan to deal with drinking problems” by the doctors, the journalist and essayist Natacha Polony responded by stating: “For the first time in years, a French president dares rehabilitate daily and reasonable consumption of wine.” She is right and we join those urging Macron to simply “drink a little bit more to be sure.”

Someone should throw the doctors in a vat of wine and leave them there.
We say Vive La France!! A Meal without wine.. is like a day without Sunshine! Vas y Macron.
I live in France and god help anyone who tries to stop the French drinking wine with lunch (or dinner)! I regularly saw French lorry drivers having a pichet of wine with their plat du jour before setting off in their lorry after lunch. There would be many more than 50 000 dead if they stopped drinking. Suicide rates would rise dramatically!
It will just never happen, there’s nothing wrong with a nice glass of Charders with your lunch. Why is there no mention of the English that go to the pub and knock back 5 or 6 pints, and think that’s normal?
