The story begins 13 to 14 years ago, with the formation of a company called Theleme. One of the co-founders of Theleme is a man named Rishi Sunak. Who just so happens to now be the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom.
The company quickly made a “wise” investment, putting millions of dollars into a small biotech firm called Modern.
At the time, Moderna only had a handful of employees, but Theleme apparently saw the potential for growth.
Years passed, and the UK government suddenly found itself in need of a reliable Covid-19 vaccine whilst Sunak was Chancelor of the Exchequer.
When Moderna claimed that its vaccine candidate was 94.5% effective, the government immediately struck a deal to purchase 5 million doses.
As time passed, Theleme’s investment in Moderna continued to pay off.
By June 2022, Theleme had amassed over 6 million shares of Moderna stock, making it the company’s largest shareholder.
The UK government also coincidentally announced a 10-year partnership with Moderna within two months of Sunak becoming Prime Minister of the UK.
This deal has a huge financial benefit for Theleme, the company co-founded by Sunak. The partnership and increased demand for Moderna’s vaccines has caused the company’s stock price to skyrocket, resulting in a significant profit for Theleme, thanks to its large holding of Moderna shares.
Is this all just a coincidence, or does this 10-year deal struck with Moderna stink of corruption, lining the pockets of the UK Prime Minister at a cost to both the British Taxpayers’ wallets/purses and their health?
In his first public remarks as the new Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Rishi Sunak said it was “the greatest privilege of my life to be able to serve the party I love and give back to the country I owe so much to.”
There are two remarkable phrases within this one statement. First, Sunak considers it a privilege to “serve the party.” Not to serve UK citizens, but to “serve the party.”
Secondly, “give back to the country I owe so much to.”
Born in Southampton, England, Sunak is one of the UK’s wealthiest politicians but chose to defend his wife who avoided paying taxes in the UK.
The BBC estimated Sunak’s wife avoided £2.1m a year in UK tax and a total of £15 million since 2015. Meanwhile, Sunak and his wife were named on the Sunday Times rich list as the 222nd wealthiest people in the UK.
Has he given back what he owes?
