SummarySans-culottes were the radical left-wing urban working class who dominated France during the French Revolution of 1789.

Mocking the French government for asking steel giant ArcelorMittal to leave France, London Mayor Boris Johnson, who is on a visit here, today said “sans-culottes”(working class militants) “appear to have captured” Paris.

Describing a 115-metre ArcelorMittal steel tower - Orbit — at the Olympics Park in London as fusion of friendship between India and UK, Johnson said, “I say this on a day when I picked up a newspaper and I see sans-culottes appear to have captured the government of Paris and a French Minister has been so eccentric as to call for a massive investor to depart”. The Mayor was speaking to Indian industry leaders.
