Article on French Discontent - Is This Accurate?

Jump to last reply

An article published today in the Telegraph disturbed me. It contends that many younger French professionals are fleeing France for other countries because of the high taxes and political situation. I know the article is a bit long, but I would like those who have a closer view, and greater understanding, to comment on whether this is factual, or a British dig at their traditional rivals. Such comments would help me have a less superficial understanding of the culture I so love to visit as a tourist. Much as I would like to, my pitiful French is not up to having such a conversation with an actual Frenchman.
