Coronation of Charles III: Jean-Luc Mélenchon Criticizes the “Falling Monarchy’s Drink”

Jean-Luc Mélenchon reacted to the coronation of King Charles III on Saturday 6 May. He criticized the ceremony and the “distillation of the royal drink”. His criticism was countered by rebel lawmaker Alexis Corbier.

While heads of state around the world congratulated the British people after the coronation of King Charles III, Jean-Luc Mélenchon was more critical of the ceremony.

While he was dripping on TV a disgusting drink for the monarchy […] A lot of people live in misery,” said the leader of France, Insoumés, during a speech during a demonstration in Marseille.

He went on to explain that “in front of a people so humiliated by neoliberal politics, there is something revolting about this cinema with this man covered in jackets and jewels and gems”.

“This ceremony reminds us why we are deeply republicans,” he continued, quoting Saint-Just and Robespierre: “Kings are beasts who accept such an offer in the face of so much suffering.”

Alexis Corbier, a rebellious MP, also criticized the ceremony, denouncing the “media saturated with the coronation of Charles III” and “full of ridiculous pro-monarchy comments”.
