Will Supreme Court Reject Govt Appeal?

BOOKMAKERS William Hill have opened a book on whether or not the Supreme Court will overrule the High Court ruling that Parliamentary approval is needed for the government to invoke Article 50 - and offer odds of 12/5 (£12 profit from £5 bet)  that it WILL overrule that decision, and 3/10 (£3 profit from £10 bet) that it WILL NOT do so.

'There is great interest in the outcome of this Appeal, so for the first time we have opened a book on a Supreme Court decision' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.

WILL ARTICLE 50 BE TRIGGERED BEFORE THE END OF MARCH 2017?......4/6 NO; 11/10 YES

WHEN WILL UK OFFICIALLY LEAVE EU?.....1/2 2019; 9/4 2020 OR LATER; 6/1 2018 OR EARLIER

WHICH LEADER WILL QUIT FIRST?

WILLIAM HILL have also now opened a betting market of which of the leaders of five major Parties will stand down first - and make Jeremy Corbyn 2/1 favourite to do so.

Hills also offer: 5/2 Paul Nuttall; 7/2 Theresa May; 6/1 Tim Farron; 6/1 Nicola Sturgeon.

'All of the Parties have relatively new leaders and it will be intriguing to see which one quits first' said Hll's spokesman Graham Sharpe.

WILLIAM HILL: RICHMOND PARK BY ELECTION: 4/11 Goldsmith; 2/1 Lib Dems; 200/1 Labour
