    It looks like London bankers will soon develop a taste for garlic and snails. since they don't have Greggs in Paris.

    Bankers not loved by Leavers

    Bankers not going to Paris just because some French geezer says he wants them there...

    Many other obstacles will prevent this such as:

    1. Main language isn't english
    2. High income tax rates
    3. France has lot more rules in place which protect workers, which banks hate
    4. Infrastructure currently in place isn't good enough
    5. Rise of Le Pen throws up possible Frexit as well.
    6. UK hasn't even left EU yet and the UK-EU passport hasn't been dealt with yet

    The income tax in France is so high so I doubt any rush of bankers to Paris is happening soon.

    Nobody currently living in a successful country wants to move to France while it's still run by that socialist drip Hollande, except for retirees who don't have to abide by their insane tax rates and dumb employment laws which contribute to its massive unemployment rate compared to ours. There's 10 times as many French living in London as there are English living in Paris. That's because Britain is - even after Brexit - better than France in pretty much every single way.

    Germany is another story though.............

    More likely for Frankfurt to be the next financial capital of EU.

    Hopefully the Swedes don't lose out and tries to get their share too.

    France has too many complex rules and I highly doubt anyone would want to live in Paris anyway.

    Frankfurt and Dublin are more appealing than Paris for the financial services industry.

    Paris, Frankfurt, Dublin and etc.

    There are plenty of places for companies to move jobs to. They are not going to wait around for a deal with the EU.

    Who needs high paid jobs to tax?

    The "working class" can have their fun when the next round of cuts come in.

    They can still blame the "bankers" for buggering off to Europe instead of paying their taxes while being demonised by the tabloids.

    I don't know why you are expecting them to pay their taxes when they are moving to a different country.

    Virtually all evil bankers pay their taxes and they are far more valuable to the exchequer.

    It is laughable that Mr Joe Bloggs getting paid 250 pound a week is complaining about not being able to buy a house. His inability to buy a house in London has nothing to do with bankers.

    Like I said before, he is going to feel the pain when the NHS is no longer free.
