    Default Will the General Election affect the state of the Contract Market?

    I was wondering if the election is going to put things on hold in the Contract Market?


    I know the political situation was different 2 years ago but my contract finished in April and I was looking for about 2 months.

    Then soon after the 2015 election, things started to pick up.

    Are you noticing any slow down in the market?

    I expect the influence will be small relative to Brexit.

    From where I am standing the financial new year hasn't really given the market a boost.

    I started a contract on the General Election day in 2010 (I remember because I had to travel home to vote) so who knows though?

    Probably not.

    It's not like the outcome is as uncertain as 2015.

    I'm hoping the defence sector remains buoyant.

    Certainly looks like it is going to remain that way

    With all the Bremoaner saboteurs to be crushed, it's a good place to be.

    Providing all crushing occurs in metric units, I don't foresee any pushback from the EUnimatrix.
