Rishi Sunak is well aware that his days are numbered. Chancellor warned that taxes would have to be raised.
RISHI SUNAK “knows his days are numbered” as one of the most popular cabinet members, amid reports that Boris Johnson may replace him.
As he works to rebuild the public finances following the coronavirus disaster, the Chancellor is contemplating a harsh expenditure review later this year. The attempt could put him at odds with the Prime Minister, who has stated that austerity would not be reinstated.

“We can’t keep spending money; we need to try to recoup some of it and reduce our borrowing requirements.”
Following rumours that the Prime Minister was considering demoting Mr Sunak, his allies said he is focused on the economy in his work as Chancellor.
The release of a letter from the Chancellor urging for the loosening of travel restrictions before of the relaxations announced on Wednesday enraged Boris Johnson, according to the Sunday Times.
“He said: ‘,” a top insider told the publication.
