The interview lasts 1 hour, but Jean-Christophe Picard, President of Anticor anti-corruption association, is so posed and so convincing that it is not so long to listen!
Many topics are discussed without language: tax optimization, corruption, delaying tactics, political intervention, abuse of public property, brakes and judicial corruption, lobbies power, political ethics, fragility of whistleblowers, reports of the Court of Accounts, GAFA, etc ...
He speaks of it with a calmness and a frankness that it is good to hear ... even if the tone sometimes borders with a false naivety and a surprise a little disconcerting with respect to the subject; but it's his touch of humor to play down this dramatic subject.
Some eloquent sentences from the speech of this gentleman so diplomatic, and who challenged me:
- "Tax optimization is tolerated fraud"
- "In France every year, the cost of optimization and tax evasion is estimated between 80 and 100 billion euros, knowing that our deficit is a minus 100 billion, ... the deficit of France is simply our inability to fight fraud and tax optimization.If we managed to get the money back, France would be in surplus.
- "In Europe, tax fraud is 1000 billion € per year".
- "In France, what is surprising is that there are no official figures on fraud ... we are in denial".
- "France is the paradise of delaying maneuvers". (to save time in the judicial field. "In Spain the treasurer of a ruling party has been sentenced to 33 years imprisonment for corruption, in France our lawsuits for corruption last 33 years!")
- "In the Scandinavian countries there is a high degree of transparency, and very little corruption, these are countries where people feel the happiest and I think it is linked to the very good distribution of wealth: when the money is well used we have better public services, we pay less taxes, ... "
- "After having compared the programs of the candidates to the presidential election on the moralisation of the political life, the 3 who made the most proposals were: Mélenchon, Dupont-Aignan and Hamon".
- "In France, people like elected officials who have pans!" (citing a theory of Philippe Séguin)
- According to an IFOP survey, there is in France only 65% of the population who think that the President of the Republic must be honest ".
The viewing of this interview should be made mandatory for all elected officials, politicians, officials, etc., in fact for everyone ... even yellow vests would find ideas of clear and concrete claims!
You have work to do, dear sir,
