On the program of the comic press review of the week: this Thursday, October 6, Elisabeth Borne announced a series of measures to fight against the energy crisis. The goal ? Reduce energy consumption by 10% compared to 2019. All this in order to avoid forcing the French to spend the winter without heating or gas. To achieve this objective, the population is called upon to set an example at all levels. The president and certain members of the government wanted to set an example by adapting their dress. “You will no longer see me with a tie, but with a turtleneck. And I think it will be very good, it will allow us to save energy, to show sobriety” announced Bruno Le Maire, the Minister of Economy and Finance, at the microphone of France Inter, on September 27th. The same day, Elisabeth Borne appeared in a down jacket at Matignon. According to an ELABE survey for BFMTV L’Opinion en direct, published on August 30, 58% of French people say they are ready to reduce their energy consumption.
