Maybe it isn't beyond our Ken
After lagging behind Boris Johnson in the betting for the London Mayoral election, Ken Livingstone odds have been cut from 4/1 to 5/2 as support comes in for the former Mayor to beat the current one.
However, Boris remains favourite, albeit his odds have lengthened from 1/7 to 2/7 since the weekend. 'It had looked as though punters were convinced Boris was set for an easy victory, but a sudden surge of support for Ken has seen his odds tumble to their shortest level of recent weeks' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
