General Election Politics By Graham Sharpe

'Bloody lively' £9,673 Milibet

AFTER DAVID CAMERON used the swear-word 'bloody' during a public appearance, William Hill are offering odds of 3/1 that he will use it again in public on or before General Election day. 'Mr Cameron resorting to swearing suggests he's feeling the pressure - he'll probably be anxious not to repeat it' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.

A WILLIAM HILL customer from South Kensington, London, has staked £9673 on Ed Miliband being Prime Minister on August 1 at odds of 8/15, and stands to make a profit of £5158. 'Mr Mliband has gone from 5/4 to the current odds of 1/2 to be Prime Minister on August 1 - with David Cameron out to 6/4. 'A bet of almost £10,000 is a pretty hefty vote of confidence in Mr Miliband' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.

HILLS have cut their odds for a Conservative-Lib Dem coalition from 9/2 to 4/1, but lengthened those for a Tory minority government from 11/4 to 3/1. The Lib Dems have been cut from 13/8 to 11/8 by Hills to be in a coalition govt after the General Election, and lengthened from 4/9 to 8/15 not to.

GENERAL ELECTION OUTCOME: 13/8 Labour minority; 3/1 Conservative minority; 4/1 Cons-LD coalition; 7/1 Coalition involving SNP; 15/2 Conservative majority; 8/1 Lab-LD Coalition; 25/1 Coalition involving DUP; 28/1 Coalition involving Ukip; 28/1 Labour majority; 33/1 Con-Lab coalition; 50/1 Coalition involving Greens; 200/1 Ukip majority; 500/1 Lib Dem majority.

SNP to win every seat in Scotland - 5/1; Labour NOT to win a seat in Scotland - 3/1.
