As the United Kingdom heads into election year and the Parties draw up their manifestos, a panel of expert speakers examined the prospects and likely implications of the 2015 UK General Election. They discussed:
- The Election day outlook, what the polls suggest will happen – with the growth of UKIP is more coalition likely or can Labour or the Conservatives surge ahead in the run up to May?
- With further cuts likely, what are the implications post 2015 of the UK’s place in the world? Can the US-UK Military alliance endure on a practical level? And how will an in-out EU referendum affect the UK’s attractiveness to foreign direct investment?
- As the main parties begin to sketch out their economic policies, how will the election result impact upon British Business and US and other Foreign Investors?
The panel included Merryn Somerset Webb, Editor-in-Chief, MoneyWeek; Philip Stephens, Associate Editor, The Financial Times; and Simon Wells, Chief UK Economist, HSBC.
