He would be more -- code in. In Russia and we then. Putin took him seriously at presidential decree and we take a moralist seriously too. Just look he used to be a fifth -- famous and friendly with French intellectuals now he just looks like a bit of an old buffoon. He's wants to escape high taxes rob Russian tax rate is 13%. Lots of great he mentions for -- arcs in Russia he could fit right into it. -- and of course he's been impressive on the fringes of Castro and Chavez gets he loves left wing dictator is that Sarah we. What where better than I had all of the new style left wing did you -- get a guy. I don't think I. Commuter tax tax residency is a tricky business you can -- not want to live where you want to pay your taxes. Of course of course the the serious side of this is that the French. Courts struck down. The race right the struck down the the proposition. As it was a reason behind it well yes it was well actually the way it was written.

The Euro crisis we'll come back and that will make the dollar. Say what you will of the United States it's not likely to split up. And that would make the dollar a relatively strong currency but of course what he's the main points trying to make this one that I don't think anyone would disagree with. Is that this is not a contest for strength but it contest for weakness and one of them wins is the least. The -- when he try to make that known would discredit athlete as a specific contract. We try to contrary as often as possible. In this case the truth is just that with the consensus. That it -- to -- -- takes a lot Edward had us.
