Yesterday Mr. Sunak referred himself to the independent ministerial watchdog to clear his name.

He said: “I have always played by the rules and I hope that such a review will bring further clarity.”

He also ordered an investigation to find out who their tax affairs leaked.

A source said it was “being carried out with a view to possible prosecution”.

Mr. Sunak faces a make-or-break week just days after his wife Akshata Murty said she will pay British taxes on the millions of pounds she makes abroad after an about-face.

But backbenchers branded Mr Sunak as “Jeremiah” – after the Bible figure who complains that everyone is out to kill him.

A senior Tory fumed: “He has shown a complete lack of political judgment.”

Mr Sunak had accused his wife’s critics of a “smear campaign”.

It was appreciated Non-Dom Status could have saved her £20m in taxes.

Then it turned out that he held a US green card until last year.

His team is trying to clear up the “complete nonsense” about his resignation.

Cabinet colleague Kit Malthouse said: “He knows the saying ‘hard times don’t last, tough people do’.”

In the meantime, Minister of Health and ex-Chancellor, Sajid Javid admitted he was a non-Dom who didn’t pay taxes in the UK for six years while working as a high-flying banker.

It has been estimated that Akshata Murty's non-dom status could have saved her £20million in taxes
