UK business leaders concerned about hung parliament

UK business leaders are becoming more and more concerned about a hung parliament with the voting polls suggesting this is the likely outcome of the next general election. There are real fears that policies which many believe will be helpful to the UK economy could be delayed or shelved as parties bicker over who has the casting vote and who is in control.

While political activists from all parties would have you believe that a hung parliament is no threat to the UK economy, there is no doubt that it would at best delay the introduction of new policies and at worst could result in another election just weeks or months down the line. While historically there was a successful hung parliament in the mid-70s, more often than not hung parliaments have led to very quick follow up elections with more confusion and delay.

Even though there is a chance that the Liberal Democrat support could fall by the wayside, many believe that Nick Clegg has pushed his party into the limelight and is unlikely to see support return to former levels. It will be interesting to see how the Conservative party and the Labour Party approach the final days of the election campaign and how they intend to nullify the threat from the Liberal Democrats.
