Manifesto Misery - How Many Seats Will Labour Lose?
William Hill have set the spread of Labour seats after June’s General Election at 157 (5/6 each side) – significantly lower than their current 232. It is 2/9 that they win fewer than 200 seats and 8/1 for fewer than 100.
“Given that the Tories are 1/33 to win the General Election, it is no surprise that Labour look set to lose a significant number of seats,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. “The leaked manifesto has done nothing to improve the likelihood of Labour grabbing a few more seats.”
William Hill can report that £16.52 has been wagered on the Tories to win the General Election for every £1 on Labour.
Total number of Labour seats: 2/9 199 seats or fewer; 3/1 200/1 seats or more
Labour to get more than 100 seats in the General Election: 1/20 100 seats or more; 8/1 less than 100 seats
