So election campaigning is now in full swing. There are political soundbites everywhere and slanging matches going on in every media outlet there is. As a self-employed businessman though I am running bloody scared at the moment and so are so many people like me. Business is quiet over at The Investment Network too as people hold onto their positions for fear of what will happen on election day. You see there are two dangerous blokes called Ed in Westminster and every self-employed business man or woman is scared witless of them having any power whatsoever. Yes its Ed Miliband and Ed Balls. The thought of these two idiots in power for small business people in unpalatable. They hate the small business and the small business owner with a passion that most level-headed normal people only ever reserve for trafficwardens! The two Ed’s however are not normal nor are they level-headed. It would appear most likely that a Labour government would feature a coalition with either UKIP or the Liberal Democrats. Nigel Farage’s only useful policy is to reintroduce smoking into pubs! I do approve of this one! Nick Clegg is too wet to make a difference. So if you want to know why small businesses are being quiet on doing business at the moment when it comes to investment, expansion and capital expenditure. It is because they are scared of the two Ed’s. What about me? Well I am scared and if Labour get any semblance of power, expect me to move to the Channel Islands fairly expediently.
