A Hung Parliament – The General Election 2017


Posted on 9th June 2017
Bruce Potter, Chairman of Blake Morgan, said:

“When Theresa May called the General Election back in April, it was widely assumed she would be consolidating, if not increasing, the Conservative majority in Parliament so she could deliver her version of a “strong Brexit”. However, as election night has turned to the morning after, the reality is very different and we are all waking to the challenges and uncertainties of a hung parliament.

“With Labour figures already calling on Mrs May to resign, the decisive mandate she sought has emphatically not been delivered and the coming days will instead be dominated by debates about what the next UK Government will look like.

“The one thing that is clear is that the priority for the next Government cannot just be about Brexit; there will also be a need to show the UK political system as well as the economy is robust and adaptable even before tackling the most complex international negotiation Britain has faced since the Second World War.”
