After fierce criticism of the millions of taxpayer dollars saved by his extremely wealthy wife, the setbacks have been linked for British Chancellor of the Exchequer Rishi Sunak, whose tax provisions on Saturday 9 April ended badly amid a purchasing power crisis.

The trouble started for the minister earlier this week when the press revealed that his wife Akshata Murty, an Indian billionaire whose wealth exceeds that of the Queen of England, had a privileged tax status that allowed her to pay no tax to His Treasury. Majesty of his income received abroad.

When Akshata Murty announced on Friday, April 8 that she would be giving up her benefits because she didn’t “distractionfor her husband, Rishi Sunak.repeatedly tried to cover their tracksabout his family’s tax arrangements, Labor MP Louise Haigh said into the BBC’s microphone on Saturday.

Akshata Murty has not broken any law, but “the problem is that the finance minister has not been transparent […] about his wife’s tax status. He was not transparent that he had a green card in the United States and had filed tax returns there. Not only when he was a Member of Parliament, but also when he was Minister of Finance‘ she pointed out.

Still a petty darling of Conservatives, the eloquent 41-year-old minister’s popularity plummeted after he announced aid measures deemed far from commensurate with the historic decline in purchasing power.
