Sunak warns he ‘can’t solve every problem’ as Tories demand fuel duty cut


Rishi Sunak today warned that he ‘can’t solve every problem’ as he poured cold water on Tory demands for fuel duty to be slashed in next week’s mini-Budget.

Speaking at the party’s Spring conference in Blackpool, the Chancellor insisted he had ‘enormous sympathy’ for people being hammered by soaring inflation and energy costs.

But he defended the eye-watering national insurance rise and tax threshold freezes due to take effect next month, saying the government needed to do ‘difficult’ things to get the public finances under control.

Instead he tried to appease restive Conservatives by vowing that he will ‘prioritise’ cutting taxes in the coming years, stressing his own Thatcherite outlook.
