Will a General Election call take the focus off the economy?

As the momentum from voters for an immediate general election continues to strengthen there are concerns that the UK economy could suffer from a potential period of inactivity at a time when assistance and funding is essential. The MP's expenses scandal continues to roll on and has impacted upon for voter's confidence in the UK political system, hence the call by more than 60% of the UK voting public for an immediate general election.

While it is debatable that the seeds of growth have already been planted in the UK economy, via a series of rescue packages and direct investment into the economy, there is still much work to be done and any impact upon the House of Commons business could be devastating. We are very much in a Catch-22 situation with confidence in MPs at a low ebb, while there is still a need for all political parties to work together for the good of the UK economy.

It will be interesting to see how the next few days pan out as pressure is mounting on Gordon Brown to dissolve parliament and call a general election immediately. However, it is highly unlikely that he will take this particular path even though voter unrest is there for all to see.
