Labour odds-on to poll least votes
William Hill make Labour 8/11 shots to poll less votes than both the Liberal Democrats and Conservatives. 'For the time in modern political betting history, Labour are favourites to finish bottom of the 'popular vote' market' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
And Hills also make Gordon Brown odds-on to announce his resignation as Labour leader before Saturday. With Labour Cabinet Ministers hinting that tactical voting is appropriate for their supporters, William Hill are betting on how many Cabinet Ministers will be defeated in their own constituencies and offer 9/4 none; 2/1 one or two; 10/3 three or four.
