Gauls for penal taxation...

In one of those typically curious moves that our neighbours to the south are so keen on, Libération has lent its support to a petition in support of tax by ''Alternatives économiques', which claims "We oppose tax cuts which will result in inadequate funds for social protection for the poorest, for education, research, health, housing and the environment". Not a word about all the needy énarques, filling the Élysée's wine cellar etc etc... This is aimed straight at Sarko, whose 'radical' plans for tax reform only go so far as to set an upper limit of 50% for direct taxes and a cut in death duties.

The 'Alternatives économiques' petition is here, and all it requires is a name, job title and an e-mail address. So, do I sign in it in the hope that best and brightest of the French continue to move to London and help enrich me, or should I send the mag an idiot's guide to the Laffer Curve and supply side economics?

One one side, Frances gains

On the other side, France loses, England gains.

Not much of a choice is it??

Its great for London that all our French neighbours are in London, and instead of having French tax to contend with, they have the non-domicile status here which I wish I had!
