Welsh secretary backed to go, has there been a leak?
William Hill have seen a spate of bets for Welsh Secretary Cheryl Gillan to be the next Minister to leave the Cabinet and have slashed her odds from 8/1 to 2/1 favourite.
‘As she is Welsh Secretary we are a little apprehensive in case there has been a leak' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.'We have seen several new accounts opened within an hour from clients in Wales, Surrey, London and Basingstoke, all of them wanting only to back Ms Gillan to go, while political punters with established accounts have been making the same bet.'
Next Minister to leave cabinet? 2/1 C Gillan; 4/1 C Huhne; T May; 6/1 Clarke; 8/1 Cable. Others on request.
