Who said taxes were boring? With the saga of actor Gérard Depardieu's exile in full swing, France has been fixated on how and how much to tax the rich. The issue has become a problem for the ruling Socialists, whose campaign promise to bring more justice and go after the wealthy is now facing a much more complex reality. Also, we discuss how gay marriage has become a lightning rod between the left and the right, seculars and the Church.
On the set:
- Philip Turle, Journalist, RFI;
- Jean-Marc Gonin, Senior Writer, Le Figaro Magazine.
