Nigel Mills to be (candy) crushed at general election?

UNDER FIRE Tory MP Nigel Mills, accused of playing 'Candy Crush' on his tablet during a Commons Committee meeting is quoted as 2/1 underdog by William Hill to retain his Amber Valley seat at the General Election.

Hills make Labour 2/5 favourites to overturn Mr Mills' current 536 majority and win the seat, with Ukip 14/1 and the Lib Dems 200/1.

'Mr Mills may well find his majority crushed at the General Election' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.

5/2 INTEREST RATE TO RISE BEFORE GENERAL ELECTION

William Hill offer 5/2 that the Bank of England interest rate will rise before the General Election, and 2/7 that it will not do so.
