More bad news for Gordon Brown. From William Hill:
Bookies William Hill have slashed the price of Gordon Browne NOT being the Labour leader on General Election day from 7/1 to 3/1 as punter pile on the misery for the PM. David Miliband is the new favourite to succeed him at 11/4, with Alan Johnson 4/1 and Lord Mandelson a 10/1 shot.
"This is a serious move and it is not just the big chill that will be sending a shiver down Gordon's spine in the next few days," said Hill's spokesman Rupert Adams.
William Hill Bet:
3/1 Gordon Brown Not To Be Labour Leader On Election Day
Next Labour Leader: 11/4 David Miliband, 4/1 Alan Johnson, 5/1 Ed Miliband, 8/1 Harriet Harman, 10/1 Lord Mandelson
Who Will Be Prime Minister On 31st Dec 2010: 1/6 David Cameron, 4/1 Gordon Brown, 66/1 Nick Clegg
