party leaders net worths

The insultingly huge net worths of the political party leaders, ranked

It’s fair to say they can all comfortably afford a Sky box

With less than three weeks until the general election, the political party leaders have been doing the rounds along the campaign trail. In an interview this week with the Guardian, the current prime minister Rishi Sunak said that during his childhood he “went without lots of things”, namely Sky TV. But now 44 years old, Rishi is one of the richest men in the country, richer even than King Charles himself.

But how do the leaders of the opposing parties in the UK fair against Rishi’s multi million pound bank balance? Are they just as out of touch as he is? Can they afford Sky TV? Here are the obnoxiously large net worths of the political party leaders:

The net worth of the Lib Dem party leader hasn’t been reported anywhere but his salary has. He apparently earns a whopping £86,584 which is but a crumb of the net worths of the other party leaders.

Net worth: £3.2 million

Nigel Farage’s net worth was a hot topic of conversation in December last year after he was paid £1.5million for taking part in ITV’s I’m a Celebrity, making him the highest paid contestant in the show’s history.

Net worth: £7.7million

Starmer has been the Labour party for four years and whilst it is a very well paying job, about £126,000 per year to be precise, he’s built up his impressive net worth through multiple different ventures. He invests in property, has book deals and does a lot of public speaking. He also worked as a human rights lawyer for nearly 30 years.

Rishi Sunak – Conservative

Net worth: £651million

The Sunday Times Rich List values Rishi Sunak and his wife Akshata Murty’s fortune at £651 million which is just mind boggling. In comparison, King Charles is worth a meagre £610million. But believe it or not, this is not the richest the couple have ever been as in 2022 their wealth reached a peak of £730million.
