PUNTERS INTERESTED IN BANKER BET
 
WITH SPECULATION rising that the Bank of England will raise the base rate of interest from 0.5% sooner rather than later, bookmakers William Hill now make it an odds-on chance that the rate will be raised before the General Election takes place.
Hills offer 8/11 that there will be a rise, Even money that it will stay at 0.5% or go lower. 'Punters are interested in betting on a rate rise, and banking on backing a winner' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
