David Cam-paigning, But When's The Referendum?
ALTHOUGH DAVID CAMERON is busily campaigning about the EU, he has yet to reveal the date of the in/out EU Referendum. But bookmakers William Hill are pretty sure they know, and make July-December 2016 their 6/5 favourite, with Jan-June 2017 a 9/4 chance. It is 7/2 to take place before the end of June 2016, and 6/1 not to take place before the end of July 2017.
Hills have had to cut their odds for the vote, whenever it happens, to produce a Leave vote,from 9/4 to 7/4, while the odds for a Remain vote have lengthened from 1/3 to 4/9.
'The EU Referndum could well become the biggest political betting event of all time - and we wouldn't be surprised to see the industry turnover approaching £20million' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
WHEN WILL IN/OUT EU REFERENDUM TAKE PLACE? 6/5 Jul-Dec 2016; 9/4 Jan-June 2017; 7/2 before end June 2016; 6/1 after July 2017.
