Rishi Sunak: England’s richest PM
Sunak, once an investment banker, is the richest prime minister England has ever had. Both his and his wife Akshata Murty’s money matters have been closely watched by the public.
The Labour Party is criticising PM Sunak for being too rich and not understanding regular people’s struggles, especially when living costs are high. There was also upset because Akshata Murty did not pay UK taxes on some of her money from India. She decided to change this in 2022 and agreed to pay taxes in the UK on all her earnings worldwide.
