Investment Markets Overview — W/E 8th May 2015

David Cameron, the UK Prime Minister, must have thought that Christmas, his Birthday and just about any other good days of his life had arrived in one, as his Conservative party swept to power, unencumbered by any minority support from other parties which just about every pollster had forecast. Most were predicting a coalition between the Labour Party and the Scottish Nationalist Party, the latter who cleaned up North of Hadrian’s Wall, whilst In the event the majority voted with their wallets on their perceived understanding on who is best for the economy. Socionomically this had an element of probability! So, as David glowed, unprecedented resignations were forthcoming from the leaders of three parties, Labour, the liberal Democrats and UKIP, albeit that the latter party actually did quite well whereas Labour had its worse result since the 1940s and the Lib-Dems in its history. Now the hard part starts for Mr Cameron as the UK is no longer united, it is effectively split three ways, Labour in Wales, the SNP in Scotland and the conservatives in England. Furthermore, the polarisation over austerity, EU membership and electoral reform remain, which will make for a difficult balancing act to govern with such a slim majority.
