Hung parliament

I don't usually get ​involved in politics with my clients,

​and also recommend you avoid issues which can be

​controversial when dealing with overseas suppliers,

​customers and ​business partners.  However, if you find

​yourself in Britain in the near future, you may need some

​terminology connected to the latest developments there in

​case your UK contact brings the issue up in Small Talk.

​Following the General Elections, the ruling

​Conservative party (also called "The Tories") failed to
​​
​win an​ overall majority ​(326 of the 650 ​seats in

​parliament), ​and is unable to form a government by itself,

​but will need support from other parties in order to govern. .

​This is known as a ​"hung parliament".

​Most people know that "Brexit" means Britain leaving (or

​exiting) Europe. However, you may hear politicians talking

​about ​​a "Hard Brexit" and a "Soft Brexit". The first one refers

​to cutting most political and economic ties between the UK

​and Europe, ​whilst the second term means "leaving"

​Europe ​but continuing to enjoy the advantages of being

​"not quite a member."

​Currently, no one knows exactly ​the​ details ​of either option.

World politics is becoming very complicated, which is why I

​try to leave it off my agenda when meeting overseas

​ business people.

​Good luck with your business in the UK !​
