Sunak ‘not interested in all Westminster politics’ he is only focused on the economy

18th Mar 24 1:45 pm

The Prime Minister has insisted that he is focussed on the UK economy and he is “not interested” in the so called Westminster politics.

This comes as there has been speculation over a plot to oust Rishi Sunak within “two weeks” before the upcoming election.

Sunak has failed to turn the Conservative Party around which has sparked speculation over his future as the Prime Minister.

Sunak said during a visit to the West Midlands, “All Conservatives are united in wanting to deliver a brighter future for our country.”

He was asked why has he not let one of his “colleagues” take the “poisoned chalice” to be at the helm of Number 10.

He replied, “I’m not interested in all Westminster politics. It doesn’t matter.

“What matters is the future of our country. And that’s what I am squarely focused on.

“That’s what I get up every morning, working as hard as I can, to deliver – whether it’s cutting people’s taxes, increasing the state pension… today increasing the number of apprenticeships and talking to small businesses.

“Those are the things that matter to people. And as we have seen over the last few weeks, our plan is working. Inflation is coming down, wages are growing and the economy is back to growing again.”

He said that they are tackling the illegal migration across the English Channel and increasing state pensions.

Sunak added, “We are absolutely united in delivering for the country on these important matters.”

He admitted that with Covid and Vladimir Putin’s war in Ukraine helping to cause a rapid rise with inflation, it has been a “tough few years.”

The Prime Minister added, “None of that is easy – not easy for me, not easy for any of you.

“But we really have turned the corner at the start of this year. Inflation has been more than halved. Mortgage rates, energy bills falling, wages are rising, consumer confidence, business confidence increasing.”
