What @MacronInEnglish can learn from Thatcher's victory in the Miners strike. 1/
2/ Make tactical concessions, but prepare for a new showdown, because they will too.
3/ Divide broad supporters from hardcore fanatics using both policy and rhetoric (what PR consultants call narrative)
4/ Deny the extremists the means to use social institutions (in miners' case labour laws, this time social media) with legal reforms.
5/ Identify your enemies correctly - scargill/ far rightists demanding a military coup or other radical activity - , and rally the country against them in favour of parliamentary democracy/the Republic. ENDS
