David Miliband - Man of Straw? You bet
With Jack Straw throwing his weight behind David Miliband for the Labour Leadership, William Hill have shortened him from 4/9 to 4/11 favourite to win the race.
His brother Ed has been lengthened from 13/8 to 15/8 and Hills make the other runners no-hopers, with Messrs Balls and Burnham both 33/1 shots and Diane Abbott 66/1.
"Jack Straw's support will be very welcome for David Miliband and punters, who were already making him hot favourite, will now be convinced he is a certainty,' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
