Colin Brazier: ‘France is a more volatile country than Britain’

GBNews published this video item, entitled “Colin Brazier: ‘France is a more volatile country than Britain'” – below is their description.

Colin Brazier says violent protest and heavy-handed policing “are part of the French Republic’s DNA, in a way it just isn’t in ours.”

He references that 10 weeks ago, a group of retired French Army generals wrote an open letter advocating a military coup to stop the country disintegrating into civil war. “If you think that could happen here, I’d say you’d been at the Pernod for too long.”

“France is a more volatile country than Britain, which partly explains why migrants don’t want to stop there on their way here. And one reason for that historic volatility is because the French executed their royal family and chose a president to embody their nation.”
