The Lenke project from the actual plans to cope with the current challenges, Kwarteng said on Monday. Therefore, the top tax rate is not abolished. "We understood and we listened."

Kwarteng recently presented an extensive package with aid to catch the high energy prices and tax cuts with the aim of driving up the growth of the British economy. However, the financing of the package remained open, which caused turbulence at the financial markets. Members of the government tried to calm investors. It was only on Sunday that Prime Minister Liz Truss, who has been in office for almost four weeks, confirmed the plans. The package had to be announced quickly because you should have acted. However, she could have done more to prepare the floor for the project, admitted Truss.

In particular, the planned abolition of the top tax rate of 45 percent had caused resentment in their own party: the conservatives could be viewed as the party, which lowers taxes for the richest, while it does little for the weakest.
