William Hill - 20/1 Brown out by Christmas - worth a punt.

William Hill are offering odds of 20/1 that Gordon Brown will NOT be the PM by the end of the year and also offer just 6/1 that he will not lead Labour into the next General Election.

'All of a sudden, punters have been looking for odds that Mr Brown will cease to be Labour leader' said Hill's spokesman Rupert Adams. 'We also have him at 1/12 to remain as leader until the next Election, but punters only seem to want to bet against him.'

The Conservatives are 4/7 favourites to win the next General Election, Labour 5/4 with the Lib Dems 66/1.

Labour MPs, start sharpening those knives.

Actually those are quite good odds.
By punting a fiver you`ll net £100.A small compensation for the possibility of a reinvigorated Labour under a new leader.

Robin,

I think this is the best odds we'll ever get. They can only go down from now on.
