After the 7 a.m. mass at the church of La Bretagne, in the heights of Saint-Denis, Ulysse, 58, and Nancy, 52, came to fulfill their civic duty. For this farmer, the day started much earlier. He got up at 2 a.m. to go and snatch 500 bales of “green zone” (green onions), wash them in order to deliver them to a wholesaler. On his choice of elector, Ulysses is categorical. He wants ” change“. His wife shares his convictions and ensures that both “don’t hate Macron“, like many voters of the National Rally. “Marine must be given a chancepleads Nancy. See how she governs. Anyway, it’s only for five years and the worst is not possible. People criticize her but they don’t know why. Because she never governed.
Ulysse mainly criticizes the outgoing president for the gradual introduction of retirement at age 65: “I started working in 1985. It’s a tough job. I was thinking of quitting at 60. There, it will not be possible”.

I had listened too much to people who said she was dangerous. I had lowered my panties, he laughs.
Odysseus also complains ” taxes“. “When you look at our net, there isn’t much left at the end of the month. However, the working days are long. The couple also criticizes the government in place for its management of the health crisis. “He handed out too much money. Lots of sloths have taken advantage of this. Some did not deserve to be helped, believe Ulysse and Nancy. The farmer does not think Marine Le Pen’s face will appear on TV screens tonight: “She doesn’t have a lot of luck being elected president. But if she still gets a big score, that will make Macron think.
