French President Emmanuel Macron suffered a humiliating setback in parliament after his vaccine passport scheme was defeated.
Macron’s minority government wanted to extend the policy whereby anyone entering France has to show proof of vaccination or a negative Covid test.

However, the right-wing populist National Rally (RN), the hard-left La France Insoumise (LFI) and the right-wing Republicains (LR) all united to vote against the policy.
Macron’s government lost the vote by a margin of 219 votes to 195.
“The bill’s defeat was met with wild cheering and a standing ovation from opposition lawmakers, in footage that was widely circulated on social media,” reports the Telegraph.
