YOU BET leader debates were great
William Hill have declared the three Party Leader debates to have been a great success with political punters.
'The three debates produced a seven figure betting turnover, with interested viewers betting on everything from who would win each vote to whether David Cameron would faint (250/1); Gordon Brown swear (25/1) or Nick Clegg hit one of the others (100/1)' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
'We are delighted with the betting response to the debate, (we won on one, broke even on one, lost on one) despite the initial problems over how to determine who had won, and firmly believe that they should become an integral part of every future General Election' added Sharpe.
'They have boosted the betting turnover which is heading firmly towards a record £25m industry turnover figure.'
