Macron stooge chosen to lead response to the yellow vests resigns due to her obscene government salary
Days before France launches a national debate in response to weeks of protests by "gilets jaunes" (yellow vests), the former minister picked to lead the exercise has stepped down.

Chantal Jouanno resigned amid an outcry over her monthly salary of €14,666 (£13,200; $16,800). (Almost equal to the president's salary).

The big debate on living standards was announced in a series of concessions.

The timing of Ms Jouanno's departure is being seen as a blow to President Emmanuel Macron as he makes final preparations for the debate, due to kick off on 15 January.

She resigned on national TV on Tuesday evening, saying she was doing so because she believed in the debate.

In an attempt to end the protests, Mr Macron said last month that the debate should be held publicly in town halls across France and focus on key questions

But political opponents and some protesters objected to Ms Jouanno being paid so much as head of the national public debate commission, calling it indecent.
