2019 general election

On reflection it was very risky of the Liberals to choose Jo Swinson as leader when her seat East Dunburtonshire is located in Scotland, a home nation, with gains for the SNP. I reckon she would have been much more likely to win a seat in an English contituency.

SNP gained 48 seats compared to the 35 in 2017.

The overall voting pattern, giving the Conservatives a clear 47 seat majority, was probably the voice of the people trying to end the uncertainty and make it easier for today’s business to invest and to make some certainty for jobs clear.

For the long term, I still think that the Labour Manifesto was better suited. In a climate emergency business cannot make good decisions other than those that lead to monetary rewards for individual investors. I don’t think that climate change will be profitable for anyone.

Yet the world cannot imagine change and business cannot change.

It will be interesting to see what happens to those arch Labour supporters up in North England who voted Conservative.
