“Beware, danger!” If he wins, I shoot myself. » In an interview at Paris Match on Wednesday, Michel Sardou explained, with lyricism, the fear of Jean-Luc Mélenchon as Prime Minister. “I declare Normandy a duchy and I put barriers everywhere,” even the singer joked at the idea of a victory for the leader of France Insoumise.
He replied this Friday morning on Franceinfo. The leader of the list New People’s Ecological and Social Union (Nupes) the legislature first wanted to be anxious to preserve French talent in the national territory. “It’s part of the heritage.” He loves his country (…) I would tell him: listen, don’t do this, ”he said soberly.
Would the exile of the right-wing singer, who voted for Mitterrand in 1981, be motivated by the significant tax hikes on the richest, promised by the leader of France Insoumise? “I don’t know why he wants to leave,” Jean-Luc Mélenchon conceded.
It provides for significant tax increases for the wealthiest
But if Michel Sardou mentions the “excesses” of the tribune in his interview, he preferred to take the lead, imagining a possible tax exile: “With the universal tax system we have imagined, you can even go to hell , I’ll catch up with the note! Jean-Luc Mélenchon warned.
The program of the third presidential election – which is already seen as Prime Minister betting on a victory in the legislative elections – predicts significant tax increases for the richest, with the return of the ISF and 100% inheritance tax from 12 million euros.
Thus, many opponents of Jean-Luc Mélenchon he is regularly at risk of seeing the great French fortunes take the brunt of his escape if he comes to power. It is therefore difficult to rejoice at Michel Sardou’s threat. “Mr. Sardou, don’t leave, stay, we love you too much and you love your country too much.” Remember Danton’s phrase: you don’t take your homeland to the soles of your shoes! Said the politician to the singer’s attention.
Jean-Luc Mélenchon had also called for a discussion on Twitter at the time of the publication of the Paris Match interview: “Mr. Sardou, can you give me an interview?” I want to convince you to stay in France when we have won. Many French people love you and the country needs your affection too ”.
