Would a Conservative government help the economy?

As news that another cabinet minister has resigned from the UK government hits the headlines, many people are now looking towards the next government with the likelihood we could see a return of the Conservative party. While this is by no means a guaranteed result at the next general election, infighting within the Labour Party has ripped the government apart. So would a Conservative government be better for the UK economy?

While historically the Conservative party has always been seen as a pro business party there is no doubt that during the vast majority of the last decade, which saw a Labour government in control, the UK economy has performed well. Even though the last 18 months have been a disaster for Gordon Brown even his worst critics could not claim he was not a confident Chancellor of the Exchequer. However, as UK businesses continue to struggle many are now calling for a Conservative government amid claims they will be more "business friendly" in these troubled times.

The need to find a balance between social conscience and feeding the UK economy is something which no party has perfected over the decades. However, in light of the fact the Conservative party has historically been pro-business, maybe now is the time for change.
