David Miliback On Board?
William Hill are offering 5/1 that David Miliband will join the Labour shadow cabinet before the next General Election. 'There are suggestions that Ed's brother is looking to return to the front line of politics after some time away and he would undoubtedly add some presence to the Labour line up if his brother is prepared to bring him on board' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
Theresa may be next Tory leader
William Hill have cut their odds about Theresa May becoming the next leader of the Conservative Party from 16/1 to 12/1 joint fourth favourite after seeing some financial support for her to do so. 'We have seen a modest number of bets for her of between £50 and £100 and trimmed her price' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
William Hill: Next Tory Leader; 4/1 Boris Johnson; 7/1 Michael Gove; 10/1 Philip Hammond; 12/1 Theresa May; George Osborne.
With Michael Heseltine joining the discussion about an EU referendum, William Hill have cut their odds about the UK quitting the EU before 2020 from 10/1 to 7/1 , and also cut their odds for a referendum on UK EU membership to take place before 2020 from 2/1 to 7/4.
‘Political punters believe a UK withdrawal from the EU is a genuine possibility' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
Hills also offer 10/1 that an In/Out referendum on the EU will take place before the next General Election.
