    in the context of 'It would be betraying no secrets to say that the French president, Jacques Chirac - who announced the date of the keenly-awaited plebiscite late last week - would have given a great deal not to have had to do so' (not my personal opinion by the way!- it's from a newspaper)

    please help!

    in this context this would be "aurait donné cher pour ne pas avoir à le faire"

    can you please provide your own effort first ? it's more profitable for you this way, than to have us translate it all in your stead ;)
