Odds Slashed For Article50 Triggering

FOLLOWING THE VOTE in Parliament, bookmakers William Hill have slashed their odds for Article50 to be triggered before the end of March from 4/7 (63% chance) to 1/4 (80% chance) and offer 11/4 that it will not happen by then.

'Over 70% of the bets we took on the outcome of the vote were for there to be 91 or more votes against, so that gamble was landed. We think this outcome will smooth the way for Theresa May to achieve her stated aim of triggering Article 50 before the end of March' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
