Lee Petts, Founder at Fifty2M speaking to Newspage commented:

“The Prime Minister announcing a General Election in the pouring rain pretty much sums up how I feel about the political choice ahead of us: dismal. Right now, my inclination is to spoil my ballot. I don’t think the mainstream political parties offer sufficient choice. Their policies are too similar, and their MPs all too willing to put party and ideology ahead of the public good. I think we need to use this opportunity to send a strong message to the political establishment, reminding politicians of all stripes that they’re meant to represent the electorate and do what’s right, not what’s politically expedient. We won’t achieve that with protest votes or not turning out. Whoever we see in Government next, I hope they do more to ease the regulatory burdens placed on small businesses, which are currently resulting in excessive costs and stifling growth.”
