Cameron TV Debate Odds
WITH DAVID CAMERON still refusing to commit himself either to a head-to-head tv debate with Ed Miliband, or to taking part in a multi-Party (4 or more) tv debate, William Hill have opened a book on the former happening, and lengthened the odds about him being part of the latter.
Hills now offer 1/4 that the PM WILL take part in a head-to-head televised debate with Ed Miliband, 11/4 that he will not. And they have cut the odds about him refusing to be part of a multi-Party (4 or more) tv debate from 12/5 to 7/4, and offer 2/5 (from 3/10) that he WILL do so.
'Mr Cameron is clearly not keen on taking part in either debate, but he has to weight that against the consequences of not doing so and the inevitable accusations that he is running scared of facing his Election opponents- and the possibility that he may be 'empty-chaired' by the broadcasters should he not take part' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
