Scots to be independent by 2020?
Bookmakers William Hill offer odds of 7/1 that Scotland will secure independence by January 1, 2020, but offer 1/16 that they will not.
'As yet even the date of the referendum is in doubt, let alone the outcome' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
Hills have cut their odds for the Referendum to take place in 2014 from 4/5 to 4/6, and for a Yes to independence majority when it does happen from 7/2 to 3/1.
'It seems that the more Westminster tries to get involved the more Scots decide they are in favour of independence' added Sharpe.
When will the Scottish Referendum take place: 2012/13: 6/4;......2014: 4/6.......2015 or later: 7/1
What will the outcome of a Scottish Referendum on independence be: Yes to independence: 3/1.......No to independence: 2/9
(Bets stands as long as ONLY one question AND two options are available on ballot paper)
