Politics General Election By Graham Sharpe

David Cameron 6/5 To Stop 'Faffing' About!

Nick Clegg has called for David Cameron to stop 'faffing' and join the tv debates - but bookmakers William Hill still make him odds-against to do so, and offer odds of 6/5 for both Messrs Cameron and Miliband to appear in the same live tv debate. They are 8/13 not to take part in a tv debate.

Hills also offer 3/1 that Mr Cameron will be 'empty-chaired' if the tv debates are held without him.

'Mr Cameron is still persisting with the strategy of hoping he will suffer no adverse effects if he refuses to take part in the tv debates, but his advisers could yet decide he will suffer if they go ahead without him' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
