Punters not so discontented following Chancellor's review
William Hill have lengthened the odds about an all out general strike taking place during 2010 from 25/1 to 33/1 following the Chancellor's spending review.
Hills are doubtful that the current coalition government will survive until 2015 offering 1/2 that the coalition will break up before January 2015 and 6/4 that it will last beyond that date.
George Osborne is now a 1/3 chance with Hills to remain in position until the next General Election takes place but 9/4 to stand down before that time.
"George Osborne looks safe in his role for the foreseeable future. Although the coalition government is bound to face severe criticism for the cuts it has imposed we do not detect an appetite for an all out general strike at the moment, so have lengthened the odds about that happening from 25/1 to 33/1," said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
