Hollande’s Taxodus: Dave’s Red Carpet Already Well Worn

Fresh from the humiliation of his premature gold medal boasting at the Olympics, President Hollande is facing the much predicted taxodus from Paris to London.

This morning’s City AM reported:

“London-based recruitment firm Astbury Marsden, which specialises in the banking sector, has seen a 51 per cent rise in French-language applicants in recent months, compared with the same period of 2011.“There is a definite spike in French-speaking candidates,” said managing director Jonathan Nicholson. We have not seen similar increases in candidates from other countries.”

When Hollande vowed to steal 75% of his hard-working countrymen’s income earlier this year Dave promised to roll out the red carpet. Now they’re saying au revoir to François…

      The cosmopolitan types hold allegience to no country and only to their own kind as Weimar Germany found out in the 1920’s and early 1930’s.

      What if, and only just what if, these people were not persecuted as they protested so vehemently at the time, but were in fact censored for their practices at undermining the state which had adopted them.

      Manufacturing was all but wiped out in the UK over the last 60 years…there’s no easy money in it. The UK was effectively hollowed out.

      “Arbeit Macht Frei” it said above the labour camps, what prophetic words.

          You’re confusing which part of society works for whom – the government work for US, not the other fucking way round! We do not have to excuse our self interest – we are not paid by them, but they by us.

          Welcome to the EU “Omnes relinquite spes, o vos intrantes”.

            So the French are over here taking all the jobs.

            They don’t pay tax in France, so they are unlikely to pay it here either.

            What a waste of our Axminister – though its probably owned by China!

            “Hollande vowed to steal 75% of his hard-working countrymen’s income earlier this year”

            Maybe, but the article is about bankers, not hard-working people.

          Now then closet (and in the case of CiF – out and out) anti semites are not welcome.

          My gasp is staggered that compared to anywhere the ‘U freakin K’ is considered a low tax economy. Especially with old continuity Brown in charge. Shurely It’s got to be some kind of bad joke ..and don’t call me shirley!


          • Jane Birkin from Paris says:

            It is a little known fact that in an average French provincial town 40% of inhabitants pay no income tax whatsoever.

            President Hollande say to pay tax is patriotic.

    Is that what it’s about, then? Will we eventually have to reduce our tax to zero to bribe people to work in this country?

      Jane Birkin from Paris says:

      I think people with real money in France realised they had more to fear from Sarkozy than Hollande.

      That is why Hollande has a relatively easy ride to power.

      You can manipulate Hollande but Sarkozy is a different proposition altogether.

        Pundit too too says:

        Hollande is only copying Mitterand where money and people took flight just before he was elected. The French electorate are rarely wrong in their forecasts – so very different to us here.

    Is this like the time Mitterrand raised taxes and prissy millionaires threatened to leave and then nothing happened?


    • 39

      No – this time they are just leaving without threatening. Experience is a wonderful thing – it’s portable, it’s not taxable and you can sell it to whosoever you wish in the world – fucks up socialist wonks every time.

      Men are born free and are everywhere in shackles to a socialist oppressor.

    Have just got back from a trip to France. It was already closed. Nearly everyone (French people) had left for good old Blighty, Spain or somewhere else. And I’m not referring to the richies and the aristos. France is, in my very humble opinion, an example of what will happen to this country when Labour return to power. Though the countryside was nice.

    Frank Hollande said he wanted a 75% tax but they can’t work out how to introduce it without everyone avoiding it and leaving a lot of oeuf on their faces so it keeps being pushed back.

    Many wealthy people fled years ago. Musicians and sports stars live abroad, French football team manager Deschamps is a Swiss tax resident!

    Did you see on your televisions the rigour and invective used by those French Socialists kicking those gypsies out of their homes in that suburb of Paris.

    Hitler would have been proud of them.

    Jane Birkin from Paris says:

    Hollande has an employment Minister called “Mr Christmas Tree”.

    When unemployment went through the three million mark yesterday he politely exclaimed that high unemployment would be here for the foreseeable future!

    Socialism in action!

    Sheikh Bashar Banka says:

    Hollande has been trying to tell the Press what a marvellous success his first 100 days in power have been.

    Well he appears to have spent 21 of those days sunning himself in the South of France with his mistress at the taxpayers’ expense.

    Petrol prices have been higher than they were before the Election despite his promises to freeze increases.

    And as for Syria he wants all the rebels to get together and form a Government of national unity.

    He is an idiot of the very highest order.

    If low tax is attracting frogs we need to seriously increase it.

    A temporary loan of a frogette is one thing.

    Allowing the smelly surrender monkeys to live here is appalling.
