Chairman’s view: General election 2019


Posted on 13th December 2019
Blake Morgan chairman, Bruce Potter, has commented on the general election and what it means for our clients.

“A central theme for all parties throughout the election has been a focus on finding a way through the deadlock parliament has found itself in.  Today’s result means there’s a considerable Conservative majority that can provide the votes a functioning government needs to ‘get Brexit done’.

“But what’s still up in the air – and will be subject to much debate, is what our future relationship with European Union will look like – and what that means for businesses and individuals across the UK.  That matters, as does clarity and detail on the government’s plans for investment in our ageing infrastructure, broadband, high streets, housing and in health and social care. 

“In what was an election that was thin on detail and high on soundbites, what we and our clients want to see is a positive and clear vision that prioritises future relationships with our closest overseas partners while focusing on our big domestic challenges.”
