If Sunak wanted to resign over tax affairs, why stay after being named a criminal?

The face of avarice: Rishi Sunak isn’t staying on as Chancellor after being named as a criminal because he wants to “deliver” for the nation; he wants something for himself. What?

In the sphere of Tory corruption, this must be fruit from a low-hanging branch – but did it occur to you?

Rishi Sunak came under sustained pressure last week after his wife Akshata Murty was exposed as having avoided paying millions of pounds in UK tax by claiming non-domiciled status.

It was then revealed that Sunak himself had been able to avoid paying UK tax for years after becoming a UK member of Parliament because he had a United States Green Card. He only gave up the privilege after having been Chancellor of the Exchequer for a considerable amount of time.

According to the Sunday Times, Sunak considered quitting, although another source told Reuters that he didn’t. You pays your money and you takes your choice.

The weirdest part of this story is that Ms Murty, who is allegedly richer than the Queen, would agree to pay taxes to keep Sunak in a job that pays only around £150,000 per year.

People like her don’t do things like that – they harm her bank balance – unless there is something in it for them. The question is: what?

And now Sunak himself has been named as a criminal by the Metropolitan Police (the fixed penalty notice he has received for attending one of the infamous Downing Street parties is a criminal sanction, meaning in the eyes of the law he has committed a crime).

The Tory government, the UK’s Parliament, and the nation as a whole are disgraced by this man.

He decided unilaterally that he was above the law that was bringing many thousands of pounds in fines to his Treasury.

He decided he was happy to inflict misery on the families of the thousands of people who died with Covid-19 – alone, because of his government’s demands – but wouldn’t dream of putting up with those restrictions himself.

And now he has decided that he doesn’t have to accept the consequence of being a criminal.

So – again – we should ask why Sunak is deciding to continue in a role he has disgraced by his criminal behaviour.

As with his wife’s earnings, Sunak doesn’t do anything in his career that does not make him a fat profit.

So the big questions are: what’s in it for him? And what is he doing in order to achieve it?
