BICC: Elections in Great Britain and morning coffee next Tuesday

The British-Icelandic Chamber of Commerce, in collaboration with BBA//Fjeldco in London, cordially invites its members to a morning coffee and discussion regarding the forthcoming parliamentary elections in Great Britain.

Venue: Hús Atvinnulífsins, Borgartúni 35.
Date: Tuesday, 11 June
Time: 08:30

On 22 May, Rishi Sunak, Prime Minister of Great Britain and leader of the Conservative Party, unexpectedly called for elections on 4 July. Despite the election period extending until the end of the year, allowing Sunak to delay until January, the government has been performing poorly in the polls and suffered a defeat in the local elections earlier in May. Many had anticipated that Sunak would postpone the elections until the autumn, hoping for an economic recovery.

Chris Mason, editor of the BBC's political news department, suggests that the timing of the election may be due to Sunak's fear that the Conservative Party's position could deteriorate further.

Keir Starmer, leader of the Labour Party, remarked that this election presents the opportunity the nation has been awaiting.

Three experts in British politics—Bogi Ágústsson, Halla Gunnarsdóttir, and Andrés Magnússon—will analyse the current state of affairs at a morning meeting in Borgartún 35, where light refreshments will be provided by BBA//Fjeldco.
