"The down grading will have little or no effect on small businesses that have a solid business plan. For most small business owners its essential that they don’t make any knee jerk decisions based on the negative sentiment alone. With macro economic factors like this there is nothing that a small business owner can do to affect the outcome. I ask myself two questions “has my world changed?” and “is my plan still valid?” If the answer is no to both then it’s important to recommit to the plan and move on.”

European Union flag Prime minister David Cameron today delivered his speech on the European Union, in which he has promised an in-out referendum on Britain’s membership of the EU by the end of 2017, if Conservatives win the next election.
Nearly 40 years since the UK became a member of the European Economic Community, prime minister David Cameron has outlined the future of Britian's involvement.
Jonathan Richards, CEO and founder of breatheHR:
'I disagree with what Cameron has done, He's bowed to the demands of the right in his party by agreeing to a Yes / No referendum. This will lead to years of uncertainty and that is bound to affect inward investment in the UK. However, we have to ask, did he really have a choice? The debate was going to run forever anyway and be a major distraction from getting the UK motoring again. Aside from this distraction, a Yes / No referendum should bring the real arguments into the open.
'The internet doesn’t recognise geographical boundaries and so we won't need to change our plans for European expansion. This will just be another bump in the road. But I can see that bigger, more traditional businesses will need to rethink business plans.'
