I've just got off the phone and we're cutting back on training, apprenticeships and investment.

Here are the reasons why:

While politicians bang on about university tuition fee's, local colleges still charge us 3K per year for 1 days training per week for anyone over 19 years old.

With 6 apprenticeships with 2 years to go, that's 18k and we will no longer train past the age of 19.

Given the political instability of the last 12 months: there a feeling the next 12 months will be more of the same. We are heading towards a recession due to this.

The prospect of high taxes and increase labour costs means no business can take the risk of investment. We will be reducing staff numbers over the next 12 months.

This has nothing to do with Brexit, just the total instability of the UK right now.

The total instability of the uk is because of Brexit.
If David Cameron hadn't been so wet he'd have kept his back benches in place over Europe. He wasn't man enough so he offered a referendum to shut them up, not thinking for one moment that he might actually lose. The rest, as they say, is history.

Makes me think of the curse, may you live in interesting times.

Actually more complicated than Brexit. People are sick to the back teeth with austerity. Young people actually got off their arses and voted (Clegg are you reading) May won't last, however she dresses it up now. She stated 6 seats is a loss. Another election this year.

Brexit isn't the problem [eusa_naughty.gif]

Its not put off overseas investors buy property in the UK.

There a feeling property prices are "inflated" and a market adjustment will happen soon. The UK is clearly unstable politically and this will put investors off.

Higher taxes were always on the cards this year for business and there a feeling the personal tax allowance may be removed.

There far too much risk right now for any kind of new work.

So the tories have/are forming a coalition with the DUP, who oppose same sex marriage in their manifesto, more spending on the NHS, no cut to the triple lock etc, all opposing the tory manifesto and after May warned about a labour coalition with the SNP, the fcuking irony of it. She is finished.

That's the irony. But even better for labour that the tories have formed a coalition with a party that opposes same sex marriage. After the tories brought in legislation to legalize it. Hilarious really. Sold their soul to the devil, just to cling on to power.
