Can Ken Livingstone defy Mayoral odds?
Ken odds tumble after opinion poll boost
Despite going ahead of Boris Johnson in an opinion poll, Ken Livingstone remains second favourite to win the London Mayoral election - but William Hill have cut his odds significantly from 2/1 to 13/8, and lengthened long-time favourite Boris from 4/11 to 4/9.
‘Opinion poll results do influence political punters and we expect to see money coming in for a Ken victory, but whether he can replace Boris as favourite remains to be seen' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
To win Mayoral Election.......4/9 Boris Johnson; 13/8 Ken Livingstone; 66/1 Brian Paddick; 10/1 Jenny Jones. Others on request.
