The British Chambers of Commerce today published the result of a survey which showed that 65% of the 300 businesses surveyed were either concerned or very concerned by the prospect of a hung parliament. On the basis that it tends to produce more coalition governments, David Cameron today publicly opposed a system of proportional representation in this country. However, on Saturday the Independent reported that of the 16 countries around the world with the top triple A financial stability rating, 10 have coalition governments and 12 use a form of proportional representation. This suggests that neither factor results in the sort of financial upheavals being suggested by the Conservatives. Who's right? We may well find out later this year.
