Rishi Sunak’s wife Akshata Murty has asked if it would be okay to resume her non-domiciled status given her husband no longer works in Downing Street.
It is believed Murty’s decision to give up her non-dom status will lead to millions in extra taxes being paid to the exchequer, something she’s no longer keen on given her husband doesn’t run it anymore.
“Giving up her non-dom status does look rather premature at this point,” explained political commentator Simon Williams.
“We understand she has already asked for it to be reinstated, but will be willing to give it up again if her husband either becomes a minister again, or if he runs for the position of prime minister.
“It’s also a pretty tough sell for Rishi to ask her to keep paying tax in the UK unnecessarily given he’s now nothing more than a backbencher.”
Voter Derek Matthews told us, “I once asked my missus to move to Basingstoke to I could get the job I wanted, and I never hear the end of it. I can’t imagine what it would have been like if we’d moved and then I quite three months later.
“Enjoy the dog house, Rishi.”
