with regards to municipal council This is Cherbourg-en-Cotentin Wednesday, December 14, 2022mayor, Benoit arrivednote, aside, a few relevant points that allow him to hit a few criticism of the government By Emmanuel Macron.

Financial autonomy

“I really believe this Liberal government has a planis gradually suffocating local communities, indicates the first referee. And therefore local services, privatize them better. I’m telling you this as I think it’s an assumed strategy. »

The elected official has once again shown his anger against the abolition of the contribution to company value added (CVAE). The next reform the end of the housing tax“false good idea”, repeats the mayor again.

This is the election promise of candidate Macron. Abolishing the CVAE is an 8 billion tax gift to companies that still don’t want much. If the state is too rich, I suggest Emmanuel Macron redistribute billions to local communities. I assure you we will know what to do with it! A non-ideological government is gradually reducing the autonomy of local communities. This leads us to reduce our public service costs. And therein lies the danger. Cities across the country will soon have to choose between opening gymnasiums and swimming pools or continuing to bring meals to seniors or child care. It is the daily life of each of us that will be turned upside down.

The contours remain blurred, their accuracy is debated future power outages It varies depending on whether it is pronounced by the President of the Republic or some ministers.

Many questions remain unanswered. I hope that if the electricity cut in our country is confirmed, the state will quickly clarify the issue. I’ve asked a number of questions about coordination between industry, businesses, water treatment, public services that will no longer be powered by electricity… But I don’t have an answer yet. I have the impression of reliving the dark hours of Covid, where we learned everything and vice versa in the wee hours of the morning.

“What I learned from the meeting is that once again, it will probably be the municipalities that will manage the children according to the conditions that the state should determine. I would prefer the children to stay in the institution and the Ministry of Education to be involved in this work. If there is no teacher, we will continue extracurricular classes. »

“Energy crisis causing difficulties”

the December 9, 2022The EDF group released information about this rebootaccording to the established schedule, from Three nuclear reactors were shut down in France for maintenance and/or control operations.

“The real question is, how did France, a country of energy independence, come to this?” Maintenance is not the only reason. I’m thinking of the weakening of EDF, the dumping of electricity, which destroyed it. Also historically, regulated access to nuclear electricity and opening up energy markets to competition was a bad idea. There is no other structure that does what we ask EDF to do. To put it simply, who can sell today for 10 that cost him 50 to produce, and then buy back the 350 he sold for Arenh (regulated input to historical nuclear electricity)? »

for society, electricity bill decreased from 4 million euros to 10 million euros per year.
