Presidential hair

No this is not about Donald Trump. The Telegraph reports:

His hair may be thinning, but French President Francois Hollande employs a barber on a salary of £99,000 a year, it has emerged. 

The revelation in the weekly newspaper, Le Canard Enchaîné,  on Wednesday sparked jibes about “shampoo socialism” — and speculation that the president has had implants to stop his hairline receding further.

The disclosure caused particular shock because  Mr Hollande came to power on a Left-wing platform, promising to be a “normal president” who would mark a break with the “extravagance” of his conservative predecessor, Nicolas Sarkozy, and his model wife, Carla Bruni.

Those socialists really know about the poor!

The barber is paid a salary almost as much as Cabinet Ministers get!
