Labour Hot Favourites For By Election
LABOUR are hot favourites at 1/14 with bookmakers William Hill to win the forthcoming by-election on December 3 in Oldham West/Royton.
Hills make UKIP 13/2 second favourites, with the Conservatives at 50/1; Greens and Lib Dems both 50/1.
Hills are offering odds of 10/11 that Labour will poll 50% or over of the votes cast; 10/11 under 50%.
"This by-election may be seen as a guide to how Jeremy Corbyn's leadership is being perceived in a traditional Labour stronghold" said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
