THE CONSERVATIVES are now hotter favourites to win the next General Election than at any time since Gordon Brown became Labour Leader, say bookmakers William Hill who have slashed the Tory odds from 4/9 at the start of this year to 1/3 favourites to be the largest Party after the next Election.
'Labour enjoyed a short-lived a short lived revival in the polls during the earlier stages of the economic crisis, but we haven't taken a three figure or bigger bet for them to win the next Election during this year' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.' All the serious money is for a Tory victory.'
Hills now make Labour 9/4 outsiders to be the largest Party with the Lib Dems 100/1. And Labour are out to 6/1 to have an overall majority at the next Election, with the Tories 1/2. Hills offer 9/4 about a Hung Parliament.
THE NEXT GENERAL ELECTION is now odds-on to take place in 2010, say bookmakers William Hill who make that a 4/9 chance. Hills offer 7/2 that it will be between July and December of this year and 4/1 before the end of June. 'As the polls turn against Labour, punters become more convinced that Mr Brown will have to wait until 2010 to call an Election in the hope that things will have swung in his favour by then.' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
Hills make Brown 1/6 to lead Labour into the next Election and 7/2 not to.
