Sarkozy U Turn On Second Home Tax

"British people help rejuvenate some of our countryside and have a very positive influence, and we should be grateful,"

This is very true. Many derelict properties that the French wouldn't bother with have been brought bsack to life by Brits who have injected welcome money into rural economies via the taxes they already pay and on the money they put into local businesses. Far better to buy a second home in France that doesn't deprive someone else of a first home as is the case in the UK.

Mons douche, mons douche Creme de Menthe por favor.

The thing Sarky overloooks is that greedy Brits buy 2nd and even 3rd homes in France fit them out with expensive improvements and decorate with twigs and then along comes the crash and they have to sell them for one half the price to a grateful Froggy.

You would prefer people buying second homes in the UK? BTW, here in France twigs are part of a tree not something you decorate a shoe box with.

Perhaps rather than increase the number of solar energy plants they should just wire up politicians to the turbines instead. So many u-turns they'd make a windmill look lazy.
