French president Francois Hollande, who claims to ‘dislike the rich’, has 3 homes on French Riviera
Daily Mail ^ | May 11, 2012 | Peter Allen

France's new Socialist president owns three holiday homes in the glamorous Riviera resort of Cannes, it emerged today.

The 57-year-old who 'dislikes the rich' and wants to revolutionise his country with high taxes and an onslaught against bankers is in fact hugely wealthy himself.

His assets were published today in the Official Journal, the gazette which contains verified information about France's government.

To the undoubted embarrassment to the most left-wing leader in Europe and a man who styles himself as 'Mr Normal', they are valued at almost £1million.

I’ve never seen a Marxist, Socialist or communist who wasn’t a lying ass, flaming hypocrite.

I am, of course, no fan of Hollande. But the article seems to be trying to create a sensation out of very little.

A villa and two flats, with a total value of £939,000, or about $1.5 million. Pfft. Sorry, that doesn't come close to reaching the super-rich threshold.

When Hollande gets to Algore or George Clooney territory with his personal real estate, they may have a story.

Socialists love to share.

Since he can't live in three houses at one time, there must be two homeless Families in France suffering without a roof over their heads.

We must find those two Families and get them on the cover of Time Magazine as soon as possible. Hopefully, those Families have have some Nursing Children.

Even better, find some homeless Islamic Families.

And call the stupid fools who vote this type of B-movie rerun into office in the middle of a financial crisis what they really are: Les Douchebagues.

Exactly right and well said, and that applies to each and every one of them without exception!

"François Hollande’s Cote d’Azur connections nicematin.com 03 May 12 Whilst Nicolas Sarkozy’s Riviera retreat at the villa of his wife’s family in Cap Negre is well known, the holiday home of presidential contender François Hollande is less known. Hollande and his former partner Segolene Royale and their children spent their summer holidays at a modest villa in Mougins (pic). Despite their separation they still share the property. As a child Hollande used to spend his summers between Manosque and the beaches of the Esterel. Hollande’s parents retired to Cannes near the Bvd de la République 15 years ago. His father George, now 89 was a doctor before entering into real estate. Hollande’s mother died in 2009. Jean-Francois Roubaud."

Of course. How many poor socialist/communist heads of state have we ever met? Collecting money and power IS their game. Oppressive rules are for everyone else.

I disagree. The story says he “dislikes the rich” not “super rich”. Anyone who has $1.5M worth of property is rich.

TO believe that a politician hates the rich, one would have to believe that flies hate excrement.

It’s odd how socialist leaders always have riches while the people they preach to have nothing.

It will also reinforce accusations that Hollande is a 'Gauche Caviar', or 'Left-Wing Caviar' - the Gallic equivalent of a Champagne Socialist.

We call 'em " Limousine Liberals " over here.

Hmmmmmm.... I thought about it for a while, and I do believe you are correct.

I think the reason he won is that his name was FRANCOIS.

Maybe while Francois is in France’ he can do something about the Franc.

Like the articles expressing 'surprise' at Obama supporting gay marriage.
