The Bulletin with UBS - The UK election: 

This week we’re discussing the outcome of Thursday’s general election in the UK. Prime minister Theresa May called the snap vote at a time when her incumbent Conservative party was flying high in the polls. But after a shaky, and frankly unconvincing, campaign the electorate dealt her a sizable blow: no working majority, and now she looks set to try and rule as a minority government. In the other corner an almost renascent Labour opposition under a revitalised Jeremy Corbyn. So yet more political turbulence this week – and the promise of more ahead, especially with Brexit discussions prominent on the agenda and now a surely even less-convincing British delegation set to head for the table in Brussels.... our panel reacts to another extraordinary night in the world of politics.

We’ll hear more about how ongoing political volatility and unpredictability are affecting both markets and investment strategy, and we’ll ask whether the suggestion that pollsters, analysts – and maybe even economists – are out of step with demographic or political realities holds water.
