Punters Reckless To Back UKIP?

Following the latest Tory defection to UKIP, WILLIAM HILL are betting on how many MPs will defect to UKIP between the Clacton by election and the General Election - and offer 6/4 that NONE will do so; 5/2 one; 5/4 two or more.

'The trickle may become a flood if UKIP do well in the imminent by-elections' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.

Hills are also betting on how many seats UKIP will win at the General Election and offer 4/1 None; 10/11 One or Two; 5/1 Three or Four; 5/2 Five or more.

UKIP have been cut from 25/1 to 8/1 by Hills to be involved in a coalition government as a result of the General Election.
