Like all socialists, their words are not worth the paper they’re written on.
There is nothing wrong with a person being wealthy and owning vast amounts of property and other assets. The problem is that this guy cast himself as something that he’s not, while using class warfare rhetoric in his campaign to pit the people of France against each other.
This guy is not against wealth, he’s against others obtaining wealth, especially the small business and middle income families, that’s where the vast of wealth lies, and he’ll suck em dry like tick on a dog’s shoulder.
NOTE: Soon France will be Greece!
France’s new Socialist president owns three holiday homes in the Riviera resort of Cannes, it emerged today.
Francois Hollande, 57, 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.
To the undoubted embarrassment of the most Left-wing leader in Europe, and a man who styles himself as “Mr Normal”, they are valued at almost £1 million.
It will also reinforce accusations that Hollande is a “gauche caviar”, or “Left-wing caviar” — the Gallic equivalent of a champagne Socialist.
Among his other assets are three current accounts in French banks — two with global giant Société Générale and one with the Postal Bank.
But it is the fabulous property portfolio which is causing the greatest stir among millions of ordinary French people who voted for Hollande over the conservative Nicolas Sarkozy last Sunday.
