Farage Election Tip Is Odds On Shot, Say Bookies


WITH NIGEL FARAGE telling the BBC's Andrew Marr that UKIP will win 'more than three or four seats' at the General Election, bookmakers William Hill are quoting odds of 4/9 that they will end up with five or more.

'We make Mr Farage's prediction an odds-on shot' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe. Hills also offer 11/1 that UKIP will get no seats at all; 7/2 that they they get at least one but no more than their current two seats; 6/1 that they take three or four.

With Mr Farage also not ruling out some kind of deal with the Tories, Hills also quote 7/1 that UKIP will be involved in a coalition government as a result of the General Election.

**William Hill have cut the odds for there being TWO General Elections during 2015 from 6/1 to 9/2.
