A courteous debate

Xavier Bertrand chose handicap for his carte blanche, promising “A great law” next to a “Great cause” dedicated to caregivers.

This debate, which remained courteous, brought out some known disagreements, on blood rights, the number of officials or the sending of the army to neighborhoods, for example. But as the congress approached, the outcome of which is very uncertain, everyone was also trying to stand out from the 150,000 members called to vote.

Michel Barnier praised his “Energy” with a veiled tackle to his neighbor Xavier Bertrand. “Energy is not agitation, (…), it is not speaking louder than others”, he said, before launching later on immigration: “Xavier Bertrand pretends not to understand! “

While Eric Ciotti, a defender of a very straight line, praised his ” freedom of thought “ on the “Subjects forbidden by the left”, Valérie Pécresse played the synthesis card: “I am trying to reach a consensus with my proposal” of migration quotas, she said. Xavier Bertrand supported him on his program of authority and social right by summarizing, on immigration that he wants to limit: “I want to go fast! “
