April turned out to be a better month than March. Better in terms of leads and sales. But I think this was to be expected as April usually heralds a natural upturn in business due to an improvement in the weather conditions.
May I think will be a strange month. A hung parliament may bring about hesitation and worry in the markets which could filter through to the consumer. If we get an outright result then any economic trouble (providing there is any) caused by a hung parliament can be avoided. However, the polls have suggested right from the beginning that a hung parliament is the most likely result. If on May 7th there is a hung parliament, it will be key for MP’s to form a working coalition Government. If so then uncertainty will cause us problems.
