From William Hill:
William Hill have dramatically altered their prices on the Lisbon treaty referendum following the latest opinion poll on the controversial EU proposals. The bookmakers previously offered odds of 11-2 for a NO vote, but strong support for the No campaign resulted in Hills cutting those odds to Even money, with a Yes vote now available at 8-11.
The latest TNS/MRBI poll gave the No campaign a 5% lead. 35% said they were going to vote NO, 30% YES , 28% were undecided, and 7% said they were not going to vote.
William Hill Irish spokesman Tony Kenny commented “We originally offered odds of 1-10 for a YES vote, but all the money is coming for the NO side” He continued “Right now the NO campaign seems to have all the momentum, but a week is a long time in politics, and we’re expecting to see a lot more twists and turns before the result is announced next Friday”
The Irish referendum takes place on Thursday the 12th June, with the result announced the following day – the superstitious date of Friday the 13th.
Will the Irish Referendum on the Lisbon Treaty be passed ? (William Hill Bet) 8-11 YES, Evens NO
