FRANCE was rocked by rioting in several major cities last night as celebrations of it’s impressive World Cup triumph over Croatia descended into widespread violence and anarchy. Incidents were reported in Grenoble, Rouen, Le Havre, Nice, Cannes, Strasbourg and Nantes in addition to widely publicised rioting in Paris, Marseille and Lyon.
In Marseille a bus was attacked:

In Lyon the celebratory atmosphere turned sour after a mob of youths destroyed street furniture, set alight rubbish bins and attacked the police. Tear gas was used to control them.

Paris, at the time of writing, appears to be in the grip of anarchy as the riots which originated from the famous Arc de Triomphe. The authorities, desperate to regain control have had to deploy water cannons alongside firing tear gas.

This is not the first time violent outbreaks have followed World Cup success for the national team. Following on from Les Bleus victory against Belgium in the semi-final Paris was again the scene of a pitched battle between youths and the police. The fact that even an astounding victory is not enough to quell the flames of discontent shows how totally the social fabric of mainland Europe has completely collapsed as a consequence of mass migration in countries such as France. Is it any real wonder parties such as the Swedish Democrats and AfD flourish given these conditions?
