Currently the hot topic of discussion in the political scenario is – Who will be the next Prime Minister of Britain?
And rightly so. But does the question stop just there?
No! There are many more questions ….
And whoever gets to live at 10 Downing Street a couple of months from now will have to answer those questions with immediate effect.
The rising level of Inflation, Cost-of-living crisis, unbelievably high energy prices, hard hit supply chains, NHS and all this on the backdrop of the Ukraine – Russia war
Will the circumstances for small businesses change for the better or worse?
