You Bet Euro crisis could result in UK quitting EU
William Hill have slashed their odds for the UK to pull out of the European Union before the next General Election takes place from 33/1 to 20/1.
"With David Cameron talking about the possibility of vetoing proposals designed to protect the Euro, some political pundits and punters believe there could be a chance of the UK leaving the EU in the relatively short term future", said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
Meanwhile, Boris Johnson has also given an opinion that problems over reorganising the eurozone could result in a UK referendum on the matter and Hills currently quote him as 1/3 favourite to win the Mayoral election (with Ken Livingstone at 9/4) and Boris is also 4/1 favourite to be the next Leader of the Conservative Party.
"We believe that Boris may have spotted an opportunity to cause a little mischief which will do his own prospects of eventually leading the Tory Party no harm whatsoever", said Hill's Graham Sharpe.
