Tories Set To Retain Witey at By Election

The Conservatives are expected to retain David Cameron’s former constituency of Witney in Thursday’s by-election, with William Hill making them 1/50 favourites to win with the Lib Dems at 12/1, UKIP 25/1, Labour 33/1 and the Green Party 150/1.

The Lib Dems have been heavily backed from 10/11 to 1/14 to be ‘best of the rest’ excluding the Tories with Labour offered at 8/1, UKIP 16/1 and the Greens 50/1.

Hills offer 9/2 that the Tories will win with a bigger percentage of the vote than at the General Election (60.2%), 1/8 that they will not do so.
