Sunak hit by second revolt, Tory MPs sign letter stating UK tax is too high

The Prime Minister faces an uphill battle to unite the rebellious Conservatives. Rishi Sunak has been hit by a second revolt from within his own party in the space of just hours today.

A group of 40 Tory MPs have signed a letter coordinated by the Conservative Way Forward (CWF) group warning the tax burden is too high and claiming billions of pounds could be saved by rooting out waste.

The letter comes after the launch of a new movement backed by billionaire Conservative donor and peer Lord Cruddas for the grassroots to “take back control” in another major headache for Mr Sunak.

“The letter highlights a new CWF report on saving taxpayers billions of pounds by slashing waste.”

CWF chair Greg Smith, former Tory leader Sir Iain Duncan Smith, Red Wall MP Lee Anderson and ex-Conservative chairman Sir Jake Berry are among the 40 signatories of the letter by the Thatcherite campaign group.

According to the group, rank-and-file Tories feel they are held in “utter contempt by party leaders” and that “their views count for nothing”.

It claims that the “coronation” of Mr Sunak, who lost the summer leadership campaign against Ms Truss, has “finally ended members’ faith in any party democracy”.

  1. The people will eventually react to the amount of money being taken from their wages. If you tax high then peoples disposable income will be low. That hits local shops meaning job losses meaning less tax. Sunak needs to reverse his high tax agenda.
