Rishi Sunak Becomes UK Prime Minister-WEF Project?
Rishi Sunak becomes Britain’s third Prime Minister of the year on today and now must turn his attention to taming an economic crisis that has left the country’s finances in a precarious state and millions of Britons struggling to afford food and energy bills. But questions in people’s mind is, “Is Rishi Sunak a WEF project?”
Sunak, the U.K.’s first leader of color, met at Buckingham Palace with King Charles III, who had just accepted the resignation of Liz Truss. In Britain’s constitutional monarchy, the monarch plays a ceremonial role in appointing government leaders.
It should be remembered, In his position as Chancellor of the Exchequer, Sunak led the UK economy through the COVID-19 pandemic. As he closes in on the role of Prime Minister, he claims he will fix the economy once more. “I want to fix our economy, unite our Party and deliver for our country,” Sunak tweeted on Sunday. Early this year, Sunak proposed some ways the UK could become a “crypto hub” that would support businesses and, in turn, those who work for them.
In April, the UK government announced its plan to make the country “a global crypto asset technology hub”. Headed up by Sunak, Finance Minister at the time, in brief the plan aims to “ensure the UK financial services sector remains at the cutting edge of technology, attracting investment and jobs and widening consumer choice,” according to the government’s website.
Speaking on the initiative back in April, Sunak said: “The measures we’ve outlined today will help to ensure firms can invest, innovate and scale up in this country. “We want to see the businesses of tomorrow – and the jobs they create – here in the UK, and by regulating effectively we can give them the confidence they need to think and invest long-term”.
If Sunak sticks to these plans, we’re anticipating more clarity on the next steps. But then in summer 2021, he proposed a central bank digital currency (CBDC), or “Britcoin” to come into play across the UK economy by 2025. All this is what the World Economic Forum is pushing.
