Seven in ten bets for Lib Dems

The Clegg factor has resulted in seven out of every ten General Election bets being for the Liberal Democrats.

Nick Clegg's performance on the televised Leaders' debate resulted in the biggest betting day of the campaign so far, with bookmakers William Hill estimating that seven out of every ten political bets they took were for a Lib Dem win.

"Pre-debate the Lib Dems would be doing well if one in every ten bet was for them, but their support turned from a trickle to a flood on Friday with a mass of modest bets of up to £100 pouring on them to win with an overall majority or to be the largest single Party, while the larger bets were placed by regular political pundits backing a Hung Parliament," said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
