June Referendum Odds-On

The chances of the in/out EU Referendum taking place before the end of June 2016 are now odds-on at 1/2 (stake £2 for profit of £1) say bookmakers William Hill – who offer 15/8 (£8 makes £15 profit) that it will be held between July and December of this year; 6/1 not before July 2017, and 8/1 between January-June 2017.

'By all accounts Mr Cameron is keen to get the Referendum over and done with as early as possible and political punters are rushing to back it happening before the end of this June' said William Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.

William Hill have cut their odds for a 'Stay' vote in the EU Referendum from 4/11 to 1/3, with a 'Leave' vote now quoted at 9/4.
