New Runners Become Ukip Favourites

PAUL NUTTALL and Suzanne Evans, confirmed as candidates for the UKIP leadership have been installed as the two front-runners by bookmakers William Hill who make Nuttall 1/2 favourite from 11/4 chance Evans.

'These two were expected to enter the race officially and look likely to emerge as the clear front-runners' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.

Hills make Raheem Kassam 7/2 third favourite, with Peter Whittle at 10/1; Nigel Farage 16/1; David Coburn and Lissa Duffy both 20/1; Arron Banks 25/1; Bill Etheridge 33/1.

WILLIAM HILL make Ukip odds-on at 8/11 to end up with no seats at all at the next General Election, 6/4 still to have one; 6/1 to emerge with two or more.
