Business leaders ‘tearing their hair out’ at current state of Westminster politics

12 Dec 2018

westminsterResponding to the news of a confidence vote in the Conservative leader, Stephen Martin, Director General of the Institute of Directors, said:

“The last thing businesses needed today was even more uncertainty – and yet politics has managed to deliver on that once again.

“Many business leaders, along with the rest of the country, will be tearing their hair out at the state of Westminster politics at the moment.

“We are edging closer and closer to no-deal as a result of constant can-kicking and internal domestic political strife.

“Politics is politics, and we will have to let this run its course. But whatever the outcome, cool heads must prevail. Ensuring economic stability and certainty in the months ahead should be priority number one for all politicians.”
