Scots betting on Independence yes vote
William Hill have cut their odds from 3/1 to 5/2 that the Scots will vote in favour of independence when they get the opportunity to do so in a Referendum. And Hills offer 4/11 that the Referendum will take place in 2014 - and 7/1 that the country will become independent by 2020.
‘Although the betting suggests an ultimate ‘no' to independence at any Referendum, the money we have taken is almost all for a ‘yes' vote- and every bet struck since David Cameron spoke on the issue has been for ‘yes'.' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
HILLS OFFER 2/5 THAT ONLY THOSE AGED 18 OR OVER WILL BE PERMITTED TO VOTE IN THE REFERENDUM, 7/4 THAT THE AGE LIMIT WILL BE LOWERED FROM THAT.
