the essential
While the government calls on the French to energy sobriety, Elisabeth Borne has decided to set an example by wearing a down jacket.

After Bruno Le Maire’s turtleneck, Elisabeth Borne takes on the down jacket. Indeed, the Prime Minister wore this warm jacket in her office to call for energy sobriety.

Elisabeth Borne showed up twice wearing a down jacket and a fleece. Once on September 27 during his interview with Urban France to deal with the issue of energy transition and another during a speech on September 28 in the Oise.

To meet the country’s challenges, I want to build a new partnership between the State and the big cities. Ecological transition, full employment and territorial cohesion, it is through joint work between the Government and @urban_france that we will move forward.

At the same time, the Minister of the Economy Bruno Le Maire assured that he would no longer wear a tie and that he would now opt for the turtleneck for the sake of energy sobriety to save heating.

For his part, Gilles Le Gendre, MP for Paris, recommended that the French no longer use dryers to reduce their electricity bill.

“My children, put on big sweaters”

These steps were strongly criticized by the opposition. “Everything that is underlined is grotesque. I find the intention laudable but this posture is paternalistic. There is a little side ‘my good children, do as your parents’, put on big sweaters”, assured Gaspard Gantzer, the communications advisor to François Hollande.

For her part, Marine Le Pen tackled this initiative. “They don’t have enough heating? Let them wear cashmere!”, She wrote on Twitter.
