Gerard Depardieu Departs France, Takes Russian Citizenship For Tax Breaks

via AnimalNewYork

"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."

I understand wanting to get out, but Russia? Couldn't he get New Zealand, the Cayman Islands, heck I'm think the region of the so-called Devil's/Bermuda Triangle might be preferred? Even that last has had fewer people disappear in it than Russia! While Russia is reportedly reformed, the only change I can see is instead of having one killing machine empowered, they now have three, the government continues as usual, "businessmen" even of the more legitimate type who have become tycoons, and outright criminal gangs. Gah!

Planet? Planet? No other planet would have them.

No matter how hard they try, they will never understand human nature. Only in their eyes is it considered good form to stand still and be a target.

Stupid is the first requirement to get your libtard card these days.

2nd is the capacity to be maximum hypocritical.

3rd is a complete lack of common sense combined with an unshakable belief in one's genius.

Extra points if one is ugly enough to make spiders run away screaming.
