Extract from a most enjoyable text

The president, Jean Joseph Mounier, had gone to console the King leaving his chair to the Bishop of Langres, who was quite incapable of controlling the rabble. ‘Order! Order!’ the bishop called as the women clambered on to the platform. ‘We don’t give a fuck for order,’ they shouted at him. ‘We want bread.’
