Well 31st October came and went and Brexit hasn't happened (again).  Parliament is being Dissolved on 5th November for yet another General Election next month as we enter a period of intense campaigning by all the political parties.  Whatever your views on whether the UK should leave the EU or not, it is clear that this not-knowing what is going to happen, is causing planning problems for businesses around the country.
