William Hill - Brown 8/1 to go to IMF for loan before GE.

William Hill are offering odds of 8/1 that the Government will have to go to the IMF for a loan before the General Election takes place. 'Having to go cap in hand to the IMF would be the ultimate humiliation for Messrs Brown and Darling, but there are plenty of punters prepared to bet that it will happen.Political betting has become so popular that we are already predicting a £20m+ betting turnover on the outcome of the next General Election' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.

Them's long odds. I'd have thought 8/1 on might be nearer the mark
