Investment Markets Overview – w/e 3 May 2013

The English electorate sent a loud, clear message to the main political parties this week, they want change. The local elections, typically held mid-way between the parliamentary general election cycle, was expected to produce an upset, but not to the extent seen, as the relative new boys on the block, the United Kingdom Independent Party, or UKIP, grabbed 25% of the vote. Nearly 10,000 candidates were fighting for seats in English county councils and unitary authorities, in charge of schools, roads, refuse and local fire rescue services, but this vote has been on far wider issues and much more than the usual mid-term protest vote. This has been more to do with a vote against the establishment itself, a wish for radical change from the policies put forward by both the Tories and Labour and in particular with Britain’s place in Europe. They want a say on continued EU membership, or not, sooner than the proposed, “during the life of the next parliament,” as suggested by Prime Minister Cameron.
