Chart of the Day – Socialist Values

Socialists are the biggest hypocrites known to man. None more so though that Cheese Eating Surrender Monkey socialists.



“I DON’T like rich people,” François Hollande once said. When campaigning for the French presidency in 2012, he promised an end to bling, a top income-tax rate of 75% on the rich, and a modest, “normal” presidency in touch with the people. Now the Socialist president’s new disclosure rules reveal that seven of his ministers, including his prime minister, Jean-Marc Ayrault, are millionaires. Laurent Fabius, the foreign minister, who comes from a family of art dealers, duly declared over €6m ($7.9m) of assets, including a flat in Paris worth €2.7m and two country houses. Michèle Delaunay, minister for the elderly, reported €5.2m of assets, including two properties in Bordeaux and two houses in different south-west resorts. Until now, only the president had to publish his wealth. Mr Hollande’s 2012 declaration included two flats in Cannes and a villa nearby, valued in all at nearly €1.2m, just under the threshold at which France’s annual wealth tax kicks in.

Helen Clark left office a multi-millionaire property magnate, David Shearer has his hidden offshore accounts and multiple properties, David Cunliffe lives in Herne Bay on millionaires mile, Phil Goff can’t stand Roskill, so lives on a lifestyle block in Clevedon.

Looks to be the same the world over.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
