Lafayette, they are going

While the going is good;

Young French people should seek work and hope for the future abroad, according to an unlikely trio of influential men in their 30s – entrepreneur FĂ©lix Marquardt, rapper Mokless and TV journalist Mouloud Achour, who have launched a campaign dubbed "Barrez-Vous"("Beat It").
In a tribune in Libération newspaper earlier this month, they said French young people must face the "embarrassing truth" that they lived in a "sclerotic gerontocracy that is collapsing a little more every day".
....The country's economic policies have put youth so low on their priorities that one in four people under 25 is out of work, they argue. Meanwhile, France's ageing political class refuses to let the younger generation in.
