BORIS JOHNSON WELCOMES FRANCE’S NEW WAVE TO LONDON
“Allons enfants de la patrie,” (or “Let us go, children of the fatherland)” is Boris Johnson, Mayor of London’s pitch to woo, French migrants to London. Johnson is trying to capitalize of Francois Hollande‘s new tax laws, taxing the wealthiest citizens of France 75%.
Hollande’s extreme tax laws basically ask France to decide between investing back into France, or saying goodbye to a nation of culture being eroded by economic pressure cooker foreces surrounding France in the Eurozone. Boris does a good job at making Francois look mean and tough. Too funny.
Bankers moving to London from France, would have the most similar values for an easy segue into London life.
With his trademark sense of humor and love of a gaff, Boris says:
“We say to the people, not since 1789 has there been such tyranny in France,” Mr Johnson joked, referring to the French revolution. “I am very keen to welcome talented French people to London.” He noted there are already 240,000 French nationals in the capital.”

Meanwhile in New Zealand we are resiled to making a good piquant l’orange for our best lamb racks in the world, growing on the green grass hills of home, with Keri Keri citron tree fruit. (Of course, no pips and served with a pistachio crust and avocado, salada and baby watercress salad greens).
