Cameron Backed To Duck TV Debate
William Hill have cut their odds for David Cameron NOT to take part in a multi- Party (4 or more) tv leader debate before the General Election from 11/4 to 12/5 but still believe he is more lilkely to agree to be included.
'There is a widespread feeling that Mr Cameron would really like to find a way of avoiding taking part in the tv debates as he has the most to lose if he does so, but the humiliation of potentially being represented by an empty chair is likely to result in him ultimately taking part' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe. Hills offer 3/10 that he WILL take part.
DAVID CAMERON is 4/7 favourite still to be PM on August 1, 2015 with Hills who offer 11/8 that Ed Miliband will be in Number Ten by then.
WILLIAM HILL have cut their odds for TWO General Elections to take place during 2015 from an opening 8/1 to 9/2. 'The more likely another Hung Parliament appears, the more likely political punters think a second 2015 General Election is' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
**With a commission set up by John Bercow recommending online voting should be permitted, William Hill are offering 3/1 that it is introduced for General Elections before the end of 2020. It is 1/ 4 not to happen by then.
**And Hills are also betting that 16/17 year olds will be getting a vote in General Elections - offering 2/5 that will happen by the end of 2024; 7/4 that it will not.
