It’s General Election week, and by Friday morning we might know who’s going to be running the country. Or the way things are going it’s quite likely we’ll end up with a hung Parliament and still have no idea who’s in charge!
The Daily Telegraph and eBay have also been running a poll – A “Blind Taste Test” to examine the business policies of the three main parties. Participants discussed and voted on various regulation, tax and business support policies without knowing which party advocated them.
The headline results are that most participants initially thought that Conservatives would be the party to support business, but in the blind taste test they only just scraped the top position with 47% of votes. Labour were hot on their heels with 43% and Lib Dems close behind with 40%. Overall the sentiment was get out of the way, stop meddling with regulations and bureaucracy and let us get on with running our businesses.
