RISHI Sunak got himself in a twist yesterday as he tried to spell out his priority for action. 

The muddle came as the PM told GB News at the G20 summit in Bali that his “number one challenge” was tackling illegal immigration.

But Mr Sunak later told the BBC: “The number one challenge we face is inflation.”

Meanwhile, Chancellor Jeremy Hunt all but confirmed there would be a council tax increase — possibly five per cent — ahead of his Autumn Statement tomorrow.

He told MPs last night: “It’s going to be a very difficult announcement.

“We’re going to be asking people who have more to contribute even more, and that will be reflected in council tax and every other tax.”
