Warning shot at Kenny

SMALL and medium enterprises (SMEs) are dissatisfied with the Government's performance in the area of jobs, credit, costs and dealing with the Troika, a new survey shows.

The overall satisfaction with the Government is negative at -55, however this is a slight improvement on the last reading, which was -56 in the spring survey.

Mark Fielding, ISME chief executive, said that although the electorate was willing to allow the Government some time to come to grips with the economic situation, after 16 months "more was expected".
