Will Cameron EU Gamble Pay Off?
DAVID CAMERON'S calculated EU gamble that he will secure the concessions he wants and then be rewarded by a 'Stay In' verdict from the In/Out EU Referendum, is rated a 4/9 chance by William Hill - who offer those odds for the Referendum 'Stay' vote to prevail and 7/4 for a Quit outcome.
But William Hill are also offering odds about when Cameron will stand down as Tory leader and offer 33/1 2015; 9/1 2016; 8/1 2017; 6/1 2018; 5/2 2019; 4/6 2020; 12/1 2021 or later. 'Mr Cameron says he'll go before the General Election, but if his strategy for the Referendum unravels he may have no option but to go earlier than planned.' said William Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
It is still not clear when the EU In/Out Referendum will take place - William Hill offer 6/4 that it will be July-December 2016; 9/4 Jan-June 2017; 5/2 before the end of June 2016; 6/1 July 2017 or later.
OUTCOME OF EU REFERENDUM... 4/9 STAY; 7/4 GO;.. In England - 4/9 stay; 13/8 go; In Scotland 1/7 stay, 4/1 go; In Wales - 1/5 stay, 10/3 go.
CAMERON TO CONTEST NEXT GENERAL ELECTION AS TORY LEADER- 1/4 NO; 11/4 YES.
NEXT ELECTED TORY LEADER... 6/4 G Osborne; 7/2 B Johnson; 8/1 S Javid; T May; 20/1 P Hammond; 28/1 M Gove; J Hunt. Others on request.
