Will Electorate Scotch UKIP MSP Ambitions?

WITH UKIP optimistic about winning seats in the forthcoming Scottish Parliament elections, following an encouraging opinion poll result for the Party, William Hill have opened a book on how many they will end up with, and make NONE their 6/4 favourite; with ONE OR TWO 3/1; THREE OR FOUR 7/1 and FIVE or more 7/4,

'The system in use for the Scottish Parliamentary elections could help UKIP to achieve representation for the first time' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.

Meanwhile, Hills have installed Suzanne Evans as 5/4 favourite to succeed Nigel Farage as UKIP leader when he eventually stands down, with the Party's MP, Douglas Carswell 5/2 second favourite.
