Pasties and Petrol Problems Leave Tories Trailing
Punters turn to Labour, leading to: Pasty/Petrol-Gate Problems For Tories!
The sudden advent of problems over pasties and petrol has seen the Conservatives slip from being favourites to becoming outsiders to win the next General Election with an overall majority as bookmakers William Hill extend their odds from 13/8 to 2/1 as political punters dismiss their chances. Meanwhile, Labour are profiting by being shortened from 2/1 to 13/8 to come back to power next time with a clear overall majority.
‘Who would have thought even a week or so ago that a combination of pasties, petrol and polls - opinion polls- would combine to make Labour favourites to win the next Election' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe. 'We've seen no serious money for the Tories whatsoever since these stories broke.'
To win overall majority at next general election...13/8 Labour; 2/1 Conservatives; 100/1 Lib Dems........2/1 no Party to achieve overall majority.
**Labour are 1/6 favourites to win the Bradford West by-election with William Hill who have seen a gamble on George Galloway's Respect Party, backed from 16/1 to 3/1 during the campaign.
