And what might Jeremy Hunt say?
Economists calculated that Liz Truss’s mini-budget exacerbated the problem to the tune of £30 billion.
"I appreciate that people’s hard-earned money isn’t going as far as it should," Chancellor Jeremy Hunt said.
The chancellor warned of "extremely difficult decisions" to restore confidence and economic stability.
The government has just appointed its fourth chancellor of the year.
"I've spoken with the chancellor since his announcement," Andrew Bridgen said.
The new chancellor also made a thinly veiled swipe at his predecessor Rishi Sunak, saying that “cutting taxes isn’t a fairytale”.
Rishi Sunak is set to lead yet another government U-turn on Thursday, this time on a tax on oil and gas companies' profits.
The chancellor was asked: "Why are you giving tax breaks to fossil fuel companies?"
The chancellor has been making waves on social media ahead of the budget. Not in a good way.
