Help us tell politicians what business really wants

Dear Mr Clark

Are you excited about the Election? I thought not...

It's difficult to feel really passionate or inspired about any of the main parties as they continue to politic. So it's even more important to make your choice on the basis of cold, hard logic and vote for the one with the best policies.

That's great in theory. But do you really know what each of the main parties is promising for business? Are you 100% sure which party offers the best policies for your business and the UK economy?

The Telegraph Business Club is supporting a partnership project run by Telegraph Media Group and eBay called 'Election 2010: the Battle for Business'. One of the tactics is to ask business leaders like you to 'blind taste' the policies of the three main parties to establish:

a) which party has the policies that are most popular with the business community.

b) what issues the three main parties need to focus on in this general election campaign.

The research results will be revealed in both the Daily and Sunday Telegraph in print and online, and the survey deadline has been extended to midnight on Tuesday 13th April.

Please help us tell the politicians what business wants. Take part in the survey today here.

And in case you needed any extra persuasion, we are offering all participants the chance to win a cash prize as a reward for taking part. The top prize is £250, with five further prizes of £50 for the runners-up. Best of luck!

Thank you in advance for taking part in this unique and valuable research - you may be surprised by what you discover!

Kind regards,

David Sumner Smith

Interesting Rental Market Research report on the Changing Face of Britain’s Landlords as Young Entrepreneurs enter the Market Analysis from has indicated a significant change in both the age and gender of private landlords in the UK. The traditional face of the archetypal British landlord is changing according to the study which shows there is a new, younger breed of landlord entering the private rental market; which would indicate that when it comes to property, many still think that there’s money to be made. Comparative data of landlord insurance policies sold by in 2006 (versus 2010) shows a marked increase in landlords aged 18-34. Likewise the gender gap is beginning to close as 39% of landlords insured via are female, versus 36% in 2006. Interestingly, when comparing the types of property being insured, there hasn’t been a statistically significant change since 2006 with terraced housing still accounting for the largest


CHRISTMAS 2019   The festive season is not far off and we just wanted to take this opportunity to confirm our opening hours over the Christmas holiday period and also to outline a few procedures: We will close for the holiday period at   Midday on 23rd December . Opening on   27th and 28th December between 9am and 1pm . We will open normally from   2nd January 2020 at 09.00 . Day to day issues which could wait until normal office hours resume on the   2nd January 2020 , should be reported then.   Our contractors may be on call but many of their suppliers close down over the Christmas period so parts can be hard to locate. We will not attend any “lockouts” over the Christmas break but can pass on the details of a good local locksmith if this occurs – the cost of which will, of course, be yours. A small request   – if you have   any   problems with your heating and hot water now or maybe an appliance that is a bit temperamental and you have been meaning to report the

What about afterwards?

It seems hard to believe that this COVID19 situation has been with us for just over 4 weeks. It actually feels like at least 2 months. If you can bear to watch the daily briefings from the government without reaching for a razor blade then you will be hearing that, just maybe, we are reaching the apex of the death rate curve and, just maybe,  there will be a relaxation of movement and a return to economic activity by most of us, subject to social distancing, masks etc. From a property market point of view, I've been decrying the gloom merchants who have been talking about 16% price falls. This is for reasons that beyond economics, people go their own way and predicting human sentiment to situations is not an exact science. I came across this article by a well-respected commentator called Roger Martin-Fagg who seems to see things my way - or I see things his way!  You have the time available so I recommend that if you want a spoonful of positivity then read this post: https:
