CONSERVATIVES 25/1 TO TAKE POWER FOR OVER FIFTEEN YEARS
DESPITE GORDON BROWN'S belief that he can maintain his role as Prime Minister and that Labour can hold on to power, William Hill have opened a book on how long the Conservatives will be in power from the day of the next Election - and offer 25/1 that they will win and remain in government for over 15 years.
Hills also offer 14/1 that the Tories will govern for between 10 years 1 day and 15 years; 7/2 between 5 years 1 day and 10 years; Evens for up to five years. 'The Conservatives are such hot favourites to win the next General Election that we have opened a book on how long they will remain in power once they take over' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
The Tories are 2/7 favourites to win the next Election with Hills, while Labour are offered at 5/2.
WILLIAM HILL have cut their odds for Mr Brown to announce his resignation during his Party Conference speech next week from 66/1 to 33/1.
THE LAST BET William Hill took for Gordon Brown to lead Labour into the next General Election was a £35 wager on August 28. 'Since then all the money has been for Mr Brown no longer to be Labour leader when the next Election takes place' said Hill's spokesman Sharpe. Hills now offer 4/7 that he WILL lead them into the next General Election and 5/4 that he will not.
William Hill have slashed their odds for Gordon Brown to be out of office by the end of the year from 7/4 to 6/4. 'There is absolutely no serious money at all for Mr Brown to survive beyond this year' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe. He is 1/2 to do so, having once been 1/10.
David Miliband has been cut from 2/1to 6/4 favourite to succeed Brown as PM and Hills also offer 6/1 Jack Straw; 6/1 Harriet Harman; 7/1 Jon Cruddas; 10/1 John Denman; Alan Johnson; James Purnell. 14/1 Ed Balls; 33 Charles Clarke.
WILLIAM HILL- Brown still PM on Jan 1, 2009 - 4/9 YES; 13/8 NO; Labour Leadership contest to take place in 2008: 11/8 YES; 8/15 NO.
Hills make Labour 3/1 to win the Glenrothes by-election for which the SNP are 2/9 favourites.
Hills are now offering 11/8 that there will be a Leadership election this year.
William Hill are offering odds of 4/7 that the Conservatives will increase their number of seats - currently 198 - to 350 or more at the next General Election, while Labour are 5/6 to end up with 209 or fewer seats.
BARACK OBAMA has been cut from 4/6 to 4/7 to win the US Election with William Hill who have lengthened John McCain from 5/4 to 11/8. 'The Palin factor has slowed down and there has been increasing recent support for Obama whose odds had drifted to their longest since he became the candidate.' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
