Macron launches national debate in response to 'yellow vests'

French President Emmanuel Macron has launched a “great national debate” with an open letter to the public in Monday’s newspapers.

The idea is to head off the anger shown by the “Yellow Vests” protesters by holding a series of town hall meetings across the country to listen to voters’ grievances.
