Punters rush to back Berlusconi to be gone
William Hill have once again shortened their odds for Silvio Berlusconi to leave his post as Italian Presidente del Consiglio in April -June, cutting them further from 5/1 to 3/1 after over 90% of bets taken were for him to leave office during that time-frame.
And Hills have significantly lengthened their odds about Berlusconi still being in power when 2011 comes round, from 4/11 to 4/7.
'Although Berlusconi has shown a remarkable knack of riding out difficult times in the past, punters seem to believe that he is on the way out now' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
When will Berlusconi cease to be Presidente del Consiglio?
After 2011...... 4/7
