Cameron losers save bookies a million
WILLIAM HILL say that the two losers David Cameron tipped listeners to the BBC Radio 4 Today programme have given the industry a million pound-plus fillip.
'Had both of Mr Cameron's horses won, bookies would have paid out over £1million to winning punters who followed his tips' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
Mr Cameron selected Midnight Fantasy at Wolverhampton; and Daring Dream at Ayr. The former finished unplaced and the latter was runner-up.
'Punters were keen to back the PM's tips to the extent that we had to create a special section on our website enabling them to place bets on both horses.
We can only sympathise, and advise him not to give up the day job - any plans to gamble the country out of recession are prsumably now on hold - maybe he should let Mr Clegg have a go next!' added Sharpe.
WILLIAM HILL HAD PLACED A £600 CHARITY BET ON THE TWO HORSES AND WILL NOW DONATE THE £600 STAKE MONEY TO MR CAMERON'S NOMINATED CHARITY.
