Shapps 7/2 To Go

William Hill offer odds of 7/2 that Grant Shapps will cease to be Chairman of the Conservative Party before the General Election takes place and 1/6 (stake £6 to win £1) that he remains in the post until then.

'The Conservatives will be anxious not to lose a high profile politician on the run-up to the Election and Mr Shapps seems adamant that there is no reason for him to quit' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
