Paris Advertising for British Financiers to Move

paiisfrogs

Paris is trying to lure British financiers to leave London for the City of Lights with this advert. Apart from the reality that London has fog about as often as Paris there are some other problems with financiers moving to the continent. Here is a list:

  • London has 41% of the foreign exchange market, Paris 3%. London trades more €uros than Paris, Frankfurt and Milan combined. The numbers for all other sectors of finance are similar. Bonds, equities and derivatives trading are centred on London. More funds are managed in London’s glitzy West End than Paris, never mind the Square Mile itself or Canary Wharf.
  • Charles De Gaulle airport will have you wishing for the joys of Heathrow.
  • The French bureaucracy is legendary, French labour laws explain why so many French entrepreneurs come to London to start-up.
  • Socialist France’s taxes explain why there are some 300,000 French men and women working in London.
  • Everything shuts early, for lunch, on Sunday, on Sartre’s birthday, whenever you need something urgently.
  • Property in Central Paris is nearly as expensive as Central London. Paris rents are the second highest in Europe.
  • Parisians are famously rude to foreigners, to the point of racist.
  • Paris smells of urine.

Paris is great for a romantic weekend, London’s real rival for the financial capital of the world is New York…

Hollande’s Calais Threat to British Voters

Earlier a French minister threatened to end border controls in Calais if Britain votes to Leave, now Hollande is making empty ultimatums to British voters. Asked specifically about what would happen to Calais border controls post-Brexit, Hollande warned:

“I don’t want to scare you. I just want to say the truth. There will be consequences if the United Kingdom is to leave the EU… I don’t want to give you catastrophic scenarios, but there will be consequences … especially in the way we handle the situation in terms of immigration. There is no solution where there is no consequences.”

Cameron just stands there and smiles. Does Hollande really think British voters are going to be threatened by a Miliband-loving, triple-dipping, pint-sized French socialist philanderer?

Political Prisoners to Be Freed in Liberated Venezuela

Two weeks after the centre-right candidate ousted Corbyn-loving Cristina de Kirchner in Argentina, now the left’s darling in the socialist paradise of Venezuela has been trounced in the polls. Nicolas Maduro’s Socialist party has lost control of the National Assembly, with the opposition gaining 99 seats. The happy results mean that political prisoners caged at the hands of the repressive Maduro regime will finally be released. Owen Jones, Diane Abbott, Grahame Morris, Colin Burgon, Richard Burgon, Tariq Ali, George Galloway, Ken Livingstone, Seumas Milne, Jeremy Corbyn – your boys took one hell of a beating.

In France, final estimates of their regional election results have the Front National in first place on 28%. The ruling socialist grouping slipped to 23.5%, while the right-wing grouping took 27%. Socialism is being rolled back across the world, just in time for Christmas…

Paris Attackers: “F***ing Arseholes”

Good rant from John Oliver:

“It is important to remember that nothing about what these arseholes are trying to do is going to work, and I’ll tell you why: If you’re in a war of culture and lifestyle with France – good f*cking luck…” 

Vive la France…

Who Were the Paris Attackers?

Sorry Obama Couldn’t Be Bothered, But Here’s James Taylor

John Kerry reaffirmed his status as international diplomacy’s leading pillock this afternoon with his excruciatingly embarrassing apology to France. After no senior American official could be bothered to attend the unity rally in Paris last week, John Kerry stowed James Taylor in his hand luggage for his visit to the French capital. Taylor was paraded at a press conference to sing “You’ve got a friend…” Which wasn’t at all awkward…

What Would Prime Minister Miliband Be Like?

yeah

Today the French press and social media are convulsed with a hat-related collective “Why is our president an embarrassing jerk?” spasm.

Guido would like to point out that “Hollande” is the French word for “Miliband”…

‘Tis the Eve of St Crispin’s Day, Dave…

On which day, according to Shakespeare, the leader of the English told the herald of the Constable of France:

Come thou no more for ransom, gentle herald:
They shall have none, I swear, but these my joints;
Which if they have as I will leave ’em them,
Shall yield them little, tell the constable.

Le Triple Dip For Hollibande

Socialist France has fallen into a triple dip recession this morning, Francois Hollande marks his first anniversary of being sworn in with his economy shrinking by 0.2% in the first quarter this year. One thing you won’t be hearing this side of the channel today is any more talk from Ed Miliband of a “united front” with France’s enterprise-destroying tax-obsessed corruption hit growth killer.[…] Read the rest

Trident Costs a Bomb

During the Cold War no one was keener on deterring the Soviet Union than Guido; Trident, Pershing and Cruise missiles meant that the Red Army stayed in Russia. That deployment and the threatened development of the Strategic Defense Initiative bankrupted the USSR and ran up the US deficit, prompting Ronald Reagan to quip that he didn’t worry about the deficit, it was “big enough to look after itself”.[…] Read the rest
