When £170,000 Is Not Enough For Hillary...

AFTER betting £170,000 that Hillary Clinton will win the US Presidential Election in a William Hill betting shop on Thursday, a 44 year old woman returned to the branch in Northumberland at 8.30a.m. on Friday morning to place an additional £13,200 on the favourite to succeed Barack Obama.

'The lady arrived at the shop almost before the door had been unlocked, telling staff that she is so convinced that Hillary will win she wanted to add to her bet or, as she called it, investment.' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.'She has now staked a total of £183,200 and stands to collect £205,916. However, Donald Trump's odds have drifted out so much that we are beginning to see money for him again, and the biggest bet struck on him this week is £2000, from a client in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk.'
