From the London Evening Standard
Nicolas Sarkozy is preparing to move to London to set up a billion-pound-plus investment fund, it was claimed today.
If the move goes ahead, the former French president could escape a planned top tax rate of 75 per cent in his home country. …..
Details of the planned move were uncovered in a raid by fraud police on the Sarkozys’ Paris home last June. Mr Sarkozy lost his immunity from prosecution after being defeated by Socialist rival François Hollande in the May presidential election.
Well, it’s tabloid stuff, but nothing would surprise me from France. And, why wouldn’t he move? France rejected him.
