Mili-Band of Brothers
Oh Brother! Milibands are favourites for Labour top job
The Miliband Brothers are dominating betting on who will be the next Labour leader, say bookmakers William Hill who now make David 2/7 favourite, with Ed their 5/1 second favourite.
'These two appear to be as popular with political punters as Jedward were with X Factor punters - albeit they ended up losing, which could be an omen for the Milibands, who should remember that favourites have a poor record in recent political leadership contests - neither David Cameron nor Nick Clegg was favourite to win his Party's leadership' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
