The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “Budget 2021: Why Rishi Sunak has lots to lose if he doesn’t get it right | Lucy Fisher analysis” – below is their description.
Rishi Sunak’s Budget on March 3 will be a “career-defining” moment for the Chancellor, according to The Telegraph’s Deputy Political Editor Lucy Fisher.
He has spent billions of pounds of public money to keep businesses and families afloat across three separate lockdowns.
But as the vaccine rollout starts to halt the spread of coronavirus and the country slowly creeps towards normality, Mr Sunak is now facing some very difficult choices, she adds.
For the Budget, he has been warned not to raise taxes but, as a Conservative chancellor, also faces pressure to balance the books and restore control over the Government’s spending.
In the video above, Lucy Fisher looks into why these decisions are so important for Mr Sunak’s career, particularly if he’s looking ahead to the 2024 General Election.
