"The most high profile Frenchman to jump ship was film mogul and business entrepreneur Gerard Depardieu who headed across the border to Belgium but in a humiliating development for (newly elected president of France) Komrade Hollande, Gerard Depardieu has accepted citizenship from Russia which has a flat federal income tax rate of 13%.
What is not generally known is that Hollande's 75% tax rate has resulted in an exodus of French talent to London which is now home to the biggest French community outside of Paris. The top income tax rate in London is a mere, piffling 45%.
In Great Britain the cynical hypocrites in the Labour Party raised the top rate to 50% only months before they left office and subsequently the number of people declaring an income of 1,000,000 plus dropped from 16,000 to 6,000 costing the Treasury valuable revenue.
The same Labour hypocrites are squealing like stuck pigs because the current government has lowered the top rate from 50% to 45% which has resulted in an increase in revenue for the Treasury.
If any reader knows what planet these socialist morons are living on, feel free to let me know."
