It is now in the news that the wife, Akshata Murty of the Chancellor of the Exchequer Rishi Sunak, being of India origin is unable to obtain Dual Nationality and decided to retain her Indian Nationality rather than applying for UK Nationality. This means she does pay UK taxes on her income earned within the UK, which has been stated that she does, but not with regards to any income earned in India and this has been so for the last 7 years as this is paid un der India’s system
Business Secretary Kwasi Kwarteng also stated that this was not possible after 15 years, but didn’t take time to expand on this’
I would stress this is all perfectly legal as is the situation such as Amazon and paying UK tax, but is it ethical and only open to persons or companies of wealth.
Business Secretary Kwasi Kwarteng also states that the tax affairs of Akshata Murty should be treated as being private and this |I would normally agree with, but she is married to Rishi, the Chancellor you by them being a couple could well be enjoying the benefits of his wife’s earnings, so with this questioning should be done.
Many in the UK are suffering considerably due to the measures introduced by Rishi to gain more revenue, while revenue is being avoided by his wife as she chooses to retain Indian Nationality rather than obtain UK Nationality as she could do having been in the UK for 3 years.

We are never all in this together for it is down to wealth, the less you have the less equal you are, when the true equality should be, in that for all to be equal, more needs to be done to bring people up to being more equal for it will never be that the wealthy give to make those less wealthy more so. Even, if the miracle does happen, the wealthy have the means to leave the UK, which the less wealthy have not.
Will a millionaire, ever need to attend a food bank, for if they do it will be because only millionaires and billionaires exist as all below have creased to exist and the millionaires will then be the new poor. No wealth redistribution only the extermination of those who have no means to exist, which in many instances are quickly approaching and for some already have.
It is said that there is a facility to voluntarily pay the tax you would have paid if you were eligible to pay, so as a gesture of goodwill she could pay voluntarily, for she can afford to do so, but feel she is unlikely to do so.
