Are you surprised to read this? Really?

France’s new Socialist president Francois Hollande owns three holiday homes in the glamorous Riviera resort of Cannes, it emerged today. The 57-year-old who ‘dislikes the rich’ and wants to revolutionise his country with high taxes and an onslaught against bankers is in fact hugely wealthy himself.  His assets were published today in the Official Journal, the gazette which contains verified information about France’s government.

Like all GOOD champagne socialists, Hollande conforms to type. More champagne as we work to make the rich more poor?

  1. Here you have another example of the deviousness of human nature!
    Some will will find a way to create wealth – others will find a way to steal it..

    I am always amazed by those who so eloquently and earnestly champion the rights of the workers, the poor and the oppressed..
    whilst quaffing their fine wines, wearing their fine clothes, and holidaying in delightfully “unspoilt and undiscovered” spots around the world.

    I have them in my own family.
    As I mentioned to our Noel, seventeen years of my life have been given to unpaid voluntary work. It is not a boast, but it is a fact. Most of those years were given as an expression of my Christian faith, and six as my belief in community and democracy.

    We have also owned and lost a guest house, lost everything in the process: savings and private pensions. Been out of work and on benefits (a few times!)
    Now we own a modest home, have our own car, and can still just about afford cheap camping holidays in France.

    The people I know who so militantly and profitably champion wealth taxation and redistribution, have done none of these things. They rarely do anything for the community at large or for free; they never think to invite those same people whose rights they champion to taste the lifestyle they enjoy.

    So Monsieur Hollande will have a lot in common with many others who hate the rich, yet seek to emulate their lifestyle on the backs of the oppressed.

  2. Monsieur Hollande is part of the political class, a group that knows no borders.
