William Hill - 10/1 on Conservative - Lib Dem Coalition

The following is a press release from William Hill:

LIB DEMS 10/1 TO TEAM UP IN COALITION GOVT WITH TORIES

With Nick Clegg indicating that the Lib Dems might be prepared to work with the Tories in the event of a Hung Parliament situation at the next General Election, William Hill offer 10/1 that the two Parties will join together in a coalition government. 'Many punters and pundits have been betting on a Hung Parliament resulting from the next General Election, and now we are starting to see money for what may occur if that happens' said William Hill spokesman Graham Sharpe.
Hills make the Conservatives 8/13 favourites to be the largest single Party at the next Election with Labour 6/5 and the Lib Dems 80/1. It is 6/4 a Hung Parliament.

CLARKE TO OUST BROWN?

William Hill have cut the odds about Charles Clarke being the next Leader of the Labour Party from 50/1 to 25/1 following his public criticism of Gordon Brown.
Gordon Brown will not find either of the above quoted odds to be good news. Is the momentum gathering on a move away from Labour - particularly Brown?

10/1 that they lay seems pretty low. The LibDims have a huge moonbat/green and pro EU brigade.
25/1 or more and I might venture some pocket money.

Interesting odds. And Millipede?

It would take something monumental to shift Brown before the next election, but I wouldn't rule it out.

I suspect Labour would opt for a fresh face leader rather than harking back to the Blair years so I personally wouldn't consider Charles Clarke to be a serious contender.
