£750,000 On General Election Already… £16.50 On Tories For Every £1 On Labour

William Hill can report that they have taken over £750,000 on the outcome of this June’s General Election and despite Theresa May’s One Show shambles, the Tories are 1/33 to win the General Election.


“The odds have  continued to come in for the Tories, almost making a mockery of the relatively generous 1/5 we offered on the day the snap election was announced,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. “For every £1 placed on Labour winning the General Election, we have seen £16.52 on the Conservatives.”


The biggest liability any individual has racked up is £175,000 – with a man from North London placing £500 at 200/1 that UKIP win a majority at the next election and then followed that up with an additional £500 at 150/1. UKIP are now just 100/1 to win a majority at the General Election.


UK General Election: 1/33 Conservative majority; 12/1 no overall majority; 25/1 Labour majority; 66/1 Liberal Democrats majority; 200/1 UKIP majority


Most seats: 1/100 Conservative; 16/1 Labour; 66/1 Liberal Democrats; 100/1 UKIP; 200/1 Greens
