From THE TELEGRAPH:
The annual mass exodus from the French capital sees the city's inhabitants while away the August heat in the countryside. But this week many of the biggest earners across the Channel have been mulling a départ which could be rather more permanent. The toppling of Nicolas Sarkozy by François Hollande, the first socialist president to lead the country in 17 years, has sent ripples of fear through the wealthier arrondissements of Paris. Mr Hollande plans to implement a 75pc tax rate on earnings over €1m (£800,000), on top of a 45pc rate for people making €150,000 or more. He is also expected to raise "wealth taxes" on property assets and end his predecessor's tax incentives to lure bankers back home.
That's the way to do it. And I would suggest to the new president that all economic emigrants from his country should have their French citizenship and passport stripped from them. Alternatively, they could be tried for treason and book themselves a date with Madame Guillotine.
My name is MadPriest and I am a socialist.
