Lib Dem Comeback?

AFTER THE Lib Dems followed up their Parliamentary by-election win by taking a council by election in Taunton Deane, William Hill are betting on how many seats the Party will end up with at the next General Election, and believe they are likely to add to their current total of nine.

Hills offer 8/11 that Tim Farron's Party will take 12 or more seats at the General Election; 11/8 6 to 11; 7/1 five or fewer.

'The Lib Dems believe they are on the comeback trail after a disastrous General Election in 2015 and we do expect them to improve their total by at least a third' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
