Hung parliament could threaten the UK’s credit rating

A hung parliament would make investors nervous, The UK would deal with this differently to other countries and it would be less of a problem in a country such as Germany which is with a coalition government. In the UK, though, there is still the assumption that we are governed by a single party and our political system would take not adapt to the new circumstances should a hung parliament be in place.

Will the UK have a hung Parliament

Not web related but any business in the UK will be taking a close on the election.

At 8:20am The conservatives have 286 Seats and Labour have 237 seats. So the current swing is a change in favour of Conservatives but it is not enough at present to give Conservatives the total control. So many politicans have learned to their cost over the years that voting can not be predicted. However no matter how much prediction pointed at the Conservatives taking control because the UK has voted in a non clear cut way it is likely that we will have a hung parliament .

Nick Clegg raises the stakes in there campaign by appearing to indicate that he would insist on being Prime Minister himself in a government where power is split between his party and Gordon Brown’s Labour Party. But  Torry leader David Cameron and his performance coming upto the election has put him nearer to Number Ten Downing Street position, the Prime Minister’s office/residence in London. The fight seemed to be generated in a 2 against 1 battle.  And when you look the labour and Lib Dems votes addded together equal is 288 seats and the conservatives have 286 seats at this point in time.

Who will win the election

Another Bad SEO Company

We have another new client has come to Chameleon due to paying lots of money Search Engine Optimisation and they have achieved no results.

On investigation we have found that the SEO company had used Black Hat SEO and also failed to address the fundemental parts of website design to make the site Google friendly.

Also as we investigated there was no Google Analytics on the site and this suggests that there was no monitoring in place.

We informed the new client to ask for a report about the SEO that was carried out.  The should be available as a minimum and they could not produce this.

Due to being a professional company we will not publish any company details but we advise clients to ask for reports showing starting ranking positions of keywords and at specific intervals the new ranking positions.

Also if you contact Chameleon we can check to see if the SEO company has carried out the basic tasks to make the site Google friendly.
