It’s Political Party Conference Season!
And whilst numerous politicians outline their visions and plans for our country’s future, if you run a small business you may look to keep one eye on proceedings. This is because we hear each party outline their plans for the economy, and what that may mean for small businesses.
But forgive us if we treat these promises and speeches as nothing more than hearsay. We’ve heard time and time again from every political party across the spectrum how they are the party for small businesses, why they would be best for the economy, how they would boost access to business finance, and so on and so forth. And then not much happens from there, and we appear to be back at square one.
Until politicians really show that they have small business interests at heart, we’ll continue to treat their pledges with the scepticism they probably deserve.
