Backing For Late Triggering Of Article 50

William Hill are offering odds of Even money (50% chance) that Article 50 WILL be triggered within Theresa May's stated deadline of the end of next March, but have cut their odds for this NOT to happen from 4/5 to 8/11.

Meanwhile, Hills also offer 5/2 (28%) that the Supreme Court WILL overturn the Brexit verdict on appeal, but make it a red hot 2/7 chance that they will NOT do so.

Hills believe Brexit will become official during 2019, and make that year their 1/2 (66% chance) favourite, with 2020 or later a 5/2 chance; 2018 or earlier 5/1.

**Marine Le Pen has been backed from 5/2 to 9/4 second favourite with William Hill to win the French Election, behind 8/11 favourite, Francois Fillon. Emmanuael Macron is 11/2 third favourite, with Manuel Valls 12/1.
