The UK General Election on June 8th produced a result that no one was expecting. Theresa May – the current Prime Minister and leader of the Conservative party – lost her parliamentary majority. Meanwhile, Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour party – the UK’s formal opposition – beat expectations and increased its number of parliamentary seats. The result is what’s known as a ‘Hung Parliament’. It means parties now need to work with each other to ensure legislation is passed. The purpose of this eBook is to explore how this arrangement will affect the UK economy and the trading decisions we might make.
