Uncle Kunty is back to telling us why the world is so awful…
Karl Lagerfeld it seems has a lot of opinions and the legendary designer is hardly shy about sharing them with us in his of course very special way.
styleite: Hollande recently introduced a very controversial tax plan in an effort to eradicate public debt, which would place a 75 percent income tax on the rich. In an interview with the Spanish edition of Marie Claire, Lagerfeld said: “This idiot will be as disastrous as Zapatero was,” referencing Spain’s former Socialist Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero, who was ousted in December 2011. The Kaiser went on to say:
“It’s a disaster. He wants to punish [the rich] and of course they leave and no one invests. Foreigners don’t want to invest in France and that’s just not going to work. … Outside of fashion, jewellery, perfume and wine, France isn’t competitive. The rest of our products don’t sell. Who buys French cars? I don’t.”
Of course the discussion of politics and how to ensure a healthy economy/society whilst maintaining social mobility is never an easy topic to digest in one go, but then again if Uncle Kunty has something constructive to say on the matter perhaps we ought to listen or perhaps just ignore him. Then again we’re all entitled to our opinions but one thing is for sure taxing the rich or not taxing them has always led to a lot of divisive opinions but of course it’s interesting to note Uncle Kunty sticking up for the rich jet set, who pretty much often tend to be his clientele….
