Boris Boosts Brexit Bets

SEVEN of every ten bets placed on the outcome of the EU Referendum with bookmakers William Hill since Boris Johnson announced he was supporting the 'Leave' campaign are for that outcome. And 55p of every £ staked on the outcome has also been for a 'Leave' result.

'Boris boosted Brexit, of that there is little doubt' said William Hill spokesman Graham Sharpe.

Hills currently make 'Remain' the 1/3 favourite, with 'Leave' quoted at 9/4.
