France, first of all congratulations on getting rid of xenophobic Mr Sarkozy.
Because of Mr Hollande’s proposed 75% tax rate on incomes of more than 1 million €, some rich residents of France have threatened to leave France. Where do they intend to leave to? To the Bahamas? To Malta? To the Cayman Islands? No. They want to move to the UK, of all places. To London to be more precise.
If you still needed any evidence that the rich are not necessarily smarter, now you have it.
Let’s look at the most important differences between France and the UK (which will show that no reasonable person would want to move that way, but rather the other way round):
To the emigrating rich of France: if you really want to come to London, I’ll swap my place here with your place in Paris, in the Pyrénées or in Bourgogne anytime. Je suis prêt pour le déménagement immédiat!
