(ANSA) – LONDON, AUGUST 08 – Former Chancellor of the Exchequer Rishi Sunak strongly focuses on contrasting the high cost of living and record inflation in the United Kingdom in an attempt to take back the favorite Foreign Minister Liz Truss in the race for Tory leadership and to the post of British Prime Minister. This is why he wants to propose a package of measures to support families struggling with energy bills starting this winter. Sunak would therefore continue on the path taken when he was Treasury Minister with direct aid to contain the surge in electricity and heating costs.
Measures criticized by Truss who instead insists on the promise of an immediate tax cut, despite forecasts of a recession by the end of the year. On this point, the British voters, according to a YouGov poll for the Times, agree with the former chancellor: 64% of the sample think that the next prime minister should focus on inflation, while 17% prefer a reduction in pressure tax. But it is not they who decide who will be the successor of the outgoing premier Boris Johnson, but the members of the conservative party, through an ongoing postal vote, who continue to prefer, at least until the latest surveys, the recipes offered by the owner of the Foreign Office based on the Tory tradition, as she herself stated, then on a tax cut.
