Accountants pick Cameron over Brown

Accountants believe that David Cameron would be the best prime minister for the continued growth of British business, according to a poll published this week

The poll, by KashFlow, showed that nearly 70% of the1,200 accountants
questioned believed Cameron would be a better option than Gordon Brown, because
of his lighter touch approach to legislative barriers. Nearly 40% of accountants
polled believe that red tape is the greatest barrier to small business growth.

Accountants said the new wave of red tape did not consider companies already
trying to enter the regulated marketplace. Despite the government’s pledge to
reduce the legislative burden, businesses were struggling to adapt to new laws.
