In short, the market is calm about the prospect of Labour, which is ahead in the polls, winning power. This is because it is expected, and the policies aren't radically different from Conservative policies. The economy as a whole isn't expected to change its course and the timing of the BoE rate cut could be more of a market driver. That said, there are some policies that could affect specific sectors, which we consider below.
