The markets rejected Liz Truss’ unfunded tax-cut plans in October, forcing her from power after just 44 days. Since he has faced a huge problem from workers’ protests over pay, health service crisis, and inflation that is at around a 40-year high and economists see Britain slipping into a long recession.
What everyone looked at his first speech of this year?
In September, Sunak failed to defeat Truss in the Conservative leadership race, putting the victory in the next election in doubt. Thus, he would be responding to critics who doubt the party’s victory. The 42-year-old leader will set out his commitment to deliver for the long term on issues such as low numeracy rates, according to the news agency Reuters.
“This is personal for me. Every opportunity I’ve had in life began with the education I was so fortunate to receive,” the leader will say as he intends to set out a new ambition for all school children in England to study some form of maths up to the age of 18.
“And it’s the single most important reason why I came into politics: to give every child the highest possible standard of education… With the right plan – the right commitment to excellence – I see no reason why we cannot rival the best education systems in the world”
A spokesperson for Sunak’s office shared details about his plans for improving poor numeracy, which is a problem that the OECD identifies as affecting “particularly large proportions of adults in England”.
But Sunak has emphasized sure to go further to set out how he will reach the goals he set out on New Year’s Eve on Twitter. When he said he wanted people to feel pride in their country, to be less anxious about inflation, energy bills and the National Health Service, and to trust in fairness, something he said could be achieved by tackling illegal migration.
With the opposition Labour Party holding with a strong lead in opinion polls, some Conservative lawmakers and ministers have called upon their leader to act and set out his vision to try to pull Britain out of its tailspin.
