Gordon Brown 9/4 to get the boot in 2009. Happy new year indeed.

Now this would make for a Happy New Year.

From William Hill:

GORDON BROWN is a 9/4 chance with William Hill to leave office as Prime Minister during 2009. If he does go, Hills make Harriet Harman 3/1 favourite to succeed him and also offer 4/1 David Miliband; 7/1 Jon Crudass; 8/1 Alan Johnson; 9/1 Jack Straw; 10/1 James Purnell.

Hills are also betting on whether there will be a General Election in 2009 and offer 7/4 that there will be one between January and June of the year; and 11/2 that there will be one between July and December of the year.

If there is one, Hills make the Conservatives 4/9 to emerge as the largest Party, with Labour 13/8 and the Lib Dems 100/1. It is 2/1 that there will be a Hung Parliament.

"Gordon Brown 9/4 to get the boot in 2009."

I'll have a punt... especially if it means that he gets the same treatment as that poor nurse in Scotland.

Missed that H, what nurse?
