Referendum Before End Of June 2016?

Bookmakers William Hill have cut their odds for the EU Referendum to take place before the end of June 2016 from 5/2 to 2/1 after a flurry of bets for that date.

William Hill have eased the odds for July-December 2016, the current favourite, from 5/4 to 6/4, and also now offer 10/3 Jan-June 2017; 8/1 July 2017 or later.

'There seems to be a growing belief that David Cameron is planning to stage the Referendum sooner rather than later to judge by the current betting pattern' said William Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.

William Hill offer 4/9 that the In/Out EU Referendum will produce a 'Stay' vote; 7/4 a 'Leave' vote.
