Forum of Private Business says divide with government gets bigger

To further prove the detachment the small business community feels from government these days, a Forum of Private Business study has revealed that a majority (89 per cent) of small businesses believe that the coalition government does not understand its impact upon the small business community.

This was revealed as small business owners and operators were asked if they think that this government will do anything to reduce red tape in the conduct of small business operations.  Most, obviously, said not.

This is to some extent contrary to what you would have expected from small business owners, who have traditionally been supporters of the Conservative Party.It is indicative, say experts, of the government’s failure when it comes to helping small businesses and the small business community’s growing lack of confidence in any legislation.
