Euro in peril? EU bet!
With Francois Hollande winning the French presidential election and an inconclusive result in the Greek Election, with the Dutch Election yet to take place, William Hill have cut their odds for the Euro to cease to exist by Dec 31, 2015 from 5/4 to 11/10 - and have made Greece 1/4 and France 20/1 to be the first country to quit the Eurozone.
'With a number of countries apparently in political turmoil and an unknown quantity taking over in France the long term future of the Euro hardly looks secure' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
First country to quit Eurozone: 1/4 Greece; 5/1 Italy; 10/1 Portugal; 12/1 Spain; 14/1 Germany; 16/1 Italy; 20/1 France. Others on request.
Will the Euro still be in existence on Dec 31, 2015?: 4/6 Yes; 11/10 No.
