UK PM Rishi Sunak has come under fire after government data revealed that he spent nearly £500,000 on private jet trips in just over a week last year. The figures, which were included in a Cabinet Office report detailing prime ministerial travel during the third quarter of 2022, have prompted accusations that Sunak is out of touch and ill-equipped to lead on environmental issues, as per a report from The Guardian.
According to the report, the UK government spent just under £108,000 on private jet travel for Sunak's attendance at the COP27 summit in Egypt. The PM flew in on 6 November and returned the following day. A week later, he embarked on a round trip to the G20 summit in Bali, Indonesia, at a cost of over £340,000.
