The Figaro Letter of May 27, 2020

On the program: the breathlessness of the epidemic, the abolition of jobs at Renault and an interview with François-Xavier Bellamy.

Hello dear subscribers,

The epidemic has not gone away, it still kills people and drives others to bed. Have we been dancing on a volcano since May 11? The risk of a second wave is not to be taken lightly, but let’s see the glass half full: the virus no longer circulates at the same speed, and it will soon be possible to return to Puy du Fou.

In this Letter, you will discover what is going on at Renault and the presidential inclinations of François Ruffin, a man who does not imagine “Go talk to Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin”. Which could cause some problems if he arrived at the Élysée.

Have a good day. It’s Alain Souchon’s birthday. The singer, who is no longer ten years old, blows out his 76 candles.
