Rachel Bell @ShineComms “I was struggling to work out why the polls had called the vote so close and I’m delighted they got it wrong! A conservative government for the next five years will give the world continued confidence that ‘GB inc’ is worth backing. I’m also pleased the SNP has such a clean sweep as I’m hopeful it will give Scotland what they need to feel represented without seeking independence.” Ollie Purdue @LootBank “For a start-up one of the…
