Government fraud QUADRUPLING under Sunak | The London Economic

Rishi Sunak: Parliament’s own figures show fraud linked to the government has quadrupled since he became Chancellor and then Prime Minister. Is this why it’s always omitted from crime figures?

Apparently, fraud linked to the government has surged during Rishi Sunak’s time as Chancellor and Prime Minister.

Is this the reason the government never includes fraud in its crime figures – because the government is the cause of much of it?

Here’s the gist:

In a new report released this week, it has been revealed that government fraud has nearly quadrupled under the watch of Rishi Sunak, reaching an alarming £21 billion from the previous £5.5 billion during Theresa May’s government.

The report, conducted by the Commons’ Public Accounts Committee, compares the two years before the 2020 pandemic under Theresa May’s government with the subsequent two years under Chancellor Rishi Sunak in Boris Johnson’s administration.

HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC), which fell under Sunak’s direct responsibility, played a significant role in the surge of fraud cases. This was mainly due to the Chancellor’s approval of £97 billion in funding for various pandemic relief schemes, including the furlough scheme, bounce back loan scheme, and the ‘Eat Out to Help Out’ program aimed at boosting the economy during the Coronavirus crisis.

    Good to see Sunak is aiding increased government fraud and corruption! So who are the real scroungers and criminals? Not impoverished women and men but the fascist tories who are allowing government fraud and crime to now an extortionate level!

    So much for democracy and government supposedly working for us peasants! The only ones amassing huge sums are the crooks in the fascist tory fake government!
