Labour probably think this is a good policy

The Telegraph

Labour would be just itching to develop policy along these lines. Their policy guru Jordan Carter already wants to shut down private schools:

Looming tax hikes by France’s new socialist government have triggered an exodus of the Gallic super-rich to ‘wealth-friendly’ nations like Britain and Switzerland.

The latest estate agency figures have shown large numbers of France’smost well-heeled families selling up and moving to neighbouring countries.

Many are fleeing a proposed new higher tax rate of 75 per cent on all earnings over one million euros. (£780,000)

The previous top tax bracket of 41 per cent on earnings over 72,000 euros is also set to increase to 45 per cent.

Sotheby’s Realty, the estate agent arm of the British auction house, said its French offices sold more than 100 properties over 1.7 million euros between April and June this year – a marked increase on the same period in 2011.

Alexander Kraft, head of Sotheby’s Realty, France, said: “The result of the presidential election has had a real impact on our sales.

“Now a large number of wealthy French families are leaving the country as a direct result of the proposals of the new government.

“These properties are then bought up by foreign investors looking for a stable real estate market like France to invest in.

“It shows the high-end property market is holding up very well, even in these difficult times.”
