Pub Landlord 11/4 To Fly In And Save Deposit

DESPITE AL 'Pub Landlord' Murray having to cancel his South Thanet sky-dive, bookmakers William Hill believe he will poll more votes than the Lib Dems and the Greens - and has a realistic chance of retaining his deposit in the constituency.

Hills offer 11/4 that the FUKP candidate will hold on to his deposit, 6/4 that he wins more votes than both the Greens and Lib Dems, and 50/1 that he actually wins the seat.

'The Pub Landlord's campaign has ensured the focus remains firmly on South Thanet, where we expect Nigel Farage to win for Ukip but give Al Murray every chance of retaining his deposit and beating both the Greens and Lib Dems' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.

SOUTH THANET..1/3 Ukip; 3/1 Conservatives; 9/1 Labour; 50/1 Pub Landlord; 150/1 Greens; 150/1 Lib Dems.

Pub Landlord to retain deposit: 11/4 Yes; 1/4 No

WHO WILL POLL MOST VOTES? 6/4 Pub Landlord; 7/4 Greens; 7/7 Lib Dems.
