Quote of the Day

Exiting socialist France, Gerard Depardieu tells PM who insulted him…

“Despite my excesses, my appetite and love for life, I am a free being, Sir, and will remain polite.”

    BBC asked this morning if there was to be an exodus from France.
    Their tame left wingers in France said “Non” and almost stated that France was with Hollande on this.
    Such biased public funded news coverage is ridiculous in the internet age.
    No mention of course of the exodus of money and of wealthy families when Mitterand came to power, which is happening as we speak.

    Read any celeb autobiography that takes in the 70s (Michael Caine’s probably the best example) and you read about either the author leaving because of Denis Healey’s tax policies or him staying reluctantly while all his mates left. The rich will not put up with punitive tax rates and can afford not to. France’s treasury will undoubtedly see a big drop in tax receipts from the better off. This is stupid, provably ineffective gesture politics.

      Socialist Politicians from whatever country are Stupid. They tax the hard working and spend like it’s going out of fashion. But they are not that stupid to forget to line their own pockets before they leave office.

      Earlier this year when in Belgium and Holland it was talked about – before Holland got into office – prices of properties along the Belgium border with France where starting to rise in anticipation of a French exodus of the better off.

    Would the exodus have included that great and patriotic Scot SIR Sean Connery?

And i’ve noticed that 100% of Guido Fawkes staff are men. Looks like Guido has a woman problem. Or is it an hypocrisy problem?
