Nobel Prace Prize: Suu Kyi Favourite For 2nd Win
British bookmaker William Hill make Aung San Suu Kyi the 11/10 favourite to be awarded the 2011 Nobel peace prize with their second favourite, Dr Sima Samar, offered at 6/1. Interestingly, Hills quote Julian Assange as a 16/1 shot, with Mark Zuckerberg 20/1 and Bill Clinton 33/1.
"The Prize has never been won by the same person twice but we believe that Aung San Suu Kyi would be a very worthy double winner of the peace prize. That said, every now and then the judges throw a surprise and Julian Assange could fit the maverick bill," said Hill's spokesman Rupert Adams.
