Rishi Sunak is taking over as the new UK prime minister after a short lived attempt by Liz Truss. Liz Truss's old style reaganomics approach not only scared the markets, but the comparison helped Sunak to acquire an image of a moderate responsible administrator.

Still the details of the new budget have not been revealed, but although many points of Truss' and Kwarteng's mini-budget have or will be reversed it appears that there will be some cuts, both in spending and taxes.

Can those cuts have more chances to go through thanks to a "could have been worse" effect created by the comparison with Truss' short stint in government?
