Comment: French president Macron was due to address the nation this evening (8pm CET) via TV with conclusions from 4 months of a ‘Great Debate’, his government’s answer to the ‘yellow vest’ uprising. His speech has been postponed by the shocking news that France’s iconic 850-year-old Catholic Cathedral has been completely destroyed by fire… The medieval Catholic cathedral, an irreplaceable example of ancient French Gothic architecture, went up in flames in the center of the French capital on Monday evening, with firefighters struggling to douse the flames. Social media users near the scene of the fire engulfing Notre-Dame de Paris have posted horrifying footage of the fire.
