Published on :

On the front page of the press, this Tuesday, June 14, the controversy over its difficulty in taking a clear position in the constituencies where the Nupes faces the National Rally of Marine Le Pen, in the second round of the legislative elections in France. A new massacre attributed to jihadists in Burkina Faso. The deportation of the first asylum seekers from the UK to Rwanda. And the dangers of the trampoline.

On the front page of the press, the campaign between the two rounds in France, where the presidential camp is threatened with losing its absolute majority in the assembly.

Neck and neck with Nupes, the left-wing alliance kidnapped by Jean-Luc Mélenchon, the presidential camp finds itself “under pressure”, and “gropes” to find the right strategy, according to Le Parisien/Today in France, which reports that the “Macronie” still hesitates between “shaking the red rag and playing to create it”, “talking about everyday life and gaining height”. Sign of these hesitations, to take a clear position in the constituencies where the Nupes faces the National Rally of Marine Le Pen, in the second round. These procrastination annoy a lot Release. “Macron squirms from the front”: the newspaper wishes to recall that Emmanuel Macron was however re-elected at the Élysée in April, thanks to the voters who voted against the RN.

The “disorder on the watchword”, also outrages Mediapart : “The macronists like to give moral lessons to others. That’s even how we recognize them”. The news site fulminates against the “bad faith” of the presidential camp, which made it known that it “will not support any RN candidate”, while indicating that it was not a question of a national instruction, but ” case by case” – provided that the Nupes candidate is not “anti-republican”. A term that remains to be defined more precisely.

And while his majority seeks the parade at the Nupes, Emmanuel Macron is on the move in Romania and Moldova, two countries bordering Ukraine. While German and Italian newspapers are talking about an extension of this visit to kyiv, the Elysée, quoted by Opinion, refuse to confirm. The newspaper notes that there are then only fifteen days left, if Emmanuel Macron wants to go to Ukraine, as president of the EU. In the meantime, this trip to Romania would be linked to the President’s commitment to visit French soldiers in operation – in this case, 500 soldiers deployed near a port on the Black Sea, as part of the reinforcement of the eastern facade of NATO.

The French army, which met at the end of Operation Barkhane in Mali, in a context of strong security deterioration in the Sahel, particularly in Burkina Faso. After the massacre this weekend of at least 50 civilians in Seytenga, in the north of the country, the Burkinabe government has decreed 72 hours of national mourning – one more, reports Wakat Sera, alarmed by the multiplication of jihadist attacks in the Sahel. “Paradox of paradoxes, it is these terrorists who served as the trigger for the seizure of power by the new masters of Ouagadougou”, notes the Burkinabé news site, which wonders “what is missing” from the military junta “to get the Burkina from the security abyss”. Wakat Sera, which castigates, moreover, the decision of the Malian junta to withdraw from the G5 Sahel to contradict Barkhane “to disarticulate in Mali to rearticulate elsewhere”, while the French force, “dedicated to loathing, overwhelmed with the seven deadly sins “, was until then a “scarecrow” for the jihadists in the so-called Three Borders area. “Where is Burkina going?” : the daily The countryis also concerned that several industrial mines are now “in the sights of armed groups”, which have already made hundreds of gold production sites “their preserve”, thus further aggravating the economic situation already very degraded in Burkina.

In Africa, again, migrants who have arrived on British soil are expected in the coming hours in Rwanda, returned by the United Kingdom under a recent agreement between London and Kigali. The Independent report that the last legal appeal, against these deportations, was rejected, Monday June 13, the British government refusing to reconsider its decision to subcontract its obligations as regards asylum in Rwanda, in exchange for a financial compensation . This market outrages part of the opinion across the Channel, especially within the Anglican Church, which denounces “a shame for the United Kingdom”, according to The I, which specifies that out of the 31 migrants initially planned, only 7 finally boarded these flights for Rwanda. Less than a dozen migrants sent back: this is precisely what is indignant The daily mail. The ultra-conservative tabloid welcomes, on the other hand, the decision of the British justice, to authorize these deportations. “We can salute the judges who have rejected, on three occasions, the requests of left-wing activists to stop the departure of migrants. But what a joke, that only a handful of the 130 passengers equipped at the start remain on the list”.

We don’t leave each other on this. Before letting you go and enjoy the sun, I wanted to warn you against the temptation to take advantage of sunny days to indulge in the joys of the trampoline. The temperature mentions a study indicating that half of emergency room admissions, for children under 14, are linked to injuries due to the use of the trampoline. A fun installation, but very dangerous. In short, to avoid fractures and other sprains and spend a summer in complete serenity, it is better to invest in the deck chair. It’s much safer…
