WITH GORDON BROWN once again under pressure, William Hill make him a 2/7 shot to cease to be Prime Minister during 2010, and offer 5/2 that he will go during 2009. He is 33/1 to go in 2011 and 25/1 in 2012.Can you believe that Harman is favourite to take over from Brown? - talk about political suicide.
Harriet Harman is 4/1 favourite to succeed Brown as Labour Leader with Hills who also offer 6/1 Alan Johnson; 7/1 Ed Miliband; David Miliband; 8/1 Jon Crudass; James Purnell. 'There is plenty of political betting money around - but not much of it is being staked on anything positive for Gordon Brown' said Hill's spokesman Garahm, Sharpe.
Meanwhile, Hills say that Labour are now the longest odds they have been since Gordon Brown came to power to win the most seats at the next General Election, at odds of 7/2, while the Conservatives are red hot favourites at 1/6.
Hills have also seen money for a Hung Parliament as a result of the next General Election, shortening the odds about that from 5/2 to 2/1.
