SUPPORT FOR GENERAL ELECTION STALEMATE

WILLIAM HILL have cut their odds for No Overall Majority to be the result of the next General Election, from 11/10 to Even money. 'Punters are finding it difficult to see any individual Party winning an overall majority' said Hil's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
Hills have lengthened Labour's odds for a clear majority from 7/4 to 15/8, and make the Tories 3/1 to do likewise - the same odds as they offer for another Tory-Lib Dem coalition; a Labour-Lib Dem coalition is 4/1; with any coalition involving UKIP 8/1. A clear UKIP majority is 100/1 with a similar Lib Dem majority 500/1.
