Not now, Darling
Punters appear unimpressed by Darling as betting on Labour to win the next General Election remains unaffected.
Punters do not believe that Alistair Darling's pre-Budget announcements have improved Labour's chances of winning the next General Election, say bookmakers William Hill.
"We have not taken a single bet of over £10 for Labour to win the next General Election since Alastair Darling's revelations," said William Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
Hills still make them 2/1 outsiders to be the largest single Party after the next election, with the Conservatives hot favourites at 4/11 and the Lib Dems written off at 100/1.
Hills offer 4/6 that the next election will not take place until 2010; but offer 2/1 that it will take place between Jan-June 09 and 9/2 between July-December 09.
