Biggest ever hung parliament bet!
William Hill have taken a bet of £5000 from a London-based client that the General Election will result in a Hung Parliament, at odds of 4/7.
'The odds for a Hung Parliament are shorter than they have ever been before, and this is the biggest bet we have ever taken on a Hung Parliament - the client will win £2850 if the bet wins' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
Meanwhile, there was the first positive support for the Conservatives since the opening television debate, as David Cameron was backed from 9/4 to 6/4 to win the second debate, on Sky later this week.
'Some punters believe Mr Clegg will find it more difficult to win the second debate without the benefit of surprise on his side' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.However, Clegg is 8/13 favourite with Gordon Brown the 8/1 outsider.
