2. Sunak warned of Johnson return. Rishi Sunak has been warned of more rebellions by Conservative MPs as a new survey found his party was trailing Labour by 18 points. A month on from Sunak taking over from Liz Truss, a Savanta ComRes poll for The Independent put Labour in a comfortable lead on 46% with the Tories languishing on just 28%. Tory MPs on the right of the party warned that if poll numbers did not improve by the spring it there could be clamour for the return of “election winner” Boris Johnson. Meanwhile, a YouGov poll revealed that 56% of voters think the UK was wrong to leave the EU; 32% think it was right; 12% don’t know. Among Leave voters, the split is 19% wrong, 70% right. The Independent

7. The importance of making a will. One of the announcements in the chancellor's autumn statement included the extension of the inheritance tax allowance freeze to April 2028. This extension means that by 2028 tax-free allowance on inheritances of up to £325,000 will have remained unchanged for almost two decades. Experts in estate planning have pointed to the rising prices of property and other assets, highlighting that people are now paying much higher taxes on their inheritance than in past years. Some also raised concerns that many people either have no will in place or are writing one without professional help, making inheritance even more tricky. According to a recent survey, three-quarters of British adults wish to leave their assets on death to their loved ones, but only half have a will to do so. The Daily Express
