Politics General Election By Graham Sharpe

Will Tulip Bloom In Most Marginal Constituency?

GLENDA JACKSON held Britain's most marginal constituency by a mere 42 votes for Labour at the last General Election - but bookmakers William Hill reckon her successor, Tulip Siddiq is a red hot favourite at odds of 1/6 to hold the seat for the Party this time round.

Hills make Conservative candidate Simon Marcus 9/2 second favourite, and he believes the threat of a Mansion Tax may help his campaign - Hills offer 4/1 that one will be implemented before the end of 2015 in the form of 'an additional UK wide tax on private properties worth £2M or more', going 1/7 that it will not be.

Lib Dem candidate, Maajid Nawaz is a 16/1 shot.
