Just 3 days before Election

Yes, just 3 days to go before the General Election 2015, and still no one is able to predict a confident outcome, that applies to the party that will have most seats and the coalition that may exist after.

The Yougov results for Sunday 3rd May were as follows.   Cons 34%   Lab 33%   LD 9%    UKIP 12%  Grn 5%   so Conservatives have a 1pt lead.

As much as the poll gives a guide I feel there are alot of false answers this time and that many are working out how their vote would work the best in their own constituencey in relation to the overall outcome for the UK, and that will be done on the day and only then will they know who they are voting for.

The Property Industry in general has voiced their disapproval of some of the Labour policies that will be introduced if they get into power, will their little thought out policies stop the property industry in its tracks? what is for sure it would do it no favours.

The last 5 years have seen a turnaround in activity  in both the Estates Agency and Lettings sector and all those other businesses associated with them, many have invested time and money to grow their businesses to meet the demand for property to buy or rent.

If asked today whether I would like to see a coalition Government of LAB/SNP led by  Miliband or a coalition Government of CONS/LD led by Cameron I would with out doubt go for the latter. The most bizarre factor in this is that SNP do not figure in yougov poll results but could end up being a coalition partner in a new UK government from 8th May, work that one out.
