COMMENT | What will many of our elite Malaysians do in the wake of the call to boycott French products because of the warning against radical Muslims by French President Emmanuel Macron?

Will a former self-styled "First Lady of Malaysia" (Flom) ditch her prized collection of multi million-ringgit Hermès Birkin bags? Will our 'tai-tais' (ladies who lunch) stop using French perfumes and cosmetics?

When travel restrictions are lifted and the jet set can indulge in a bit of retail therapy in the shopping capitals of the world, will they refuse to travel if the aeroplane is an Airbus A380? Will some Malays stop their debauched partying on the Riviera?

If the French successfully develop a vaccine for Covid-19, will the Muslims reject the treatment?
