By Elections And Brexit Completion Too Close To Call

**BY ELECTIONS AND BREXIT TOO CLOSE TO CALL

The forthcoming by elections look too close to call as a gamble on Ukip to win in Stoke has seen their odds cut to Even money, with Labour just hanging on to favouritism at 4/5. The Lib Dems are 22/1 and the Tories 25/1 - but in Copeland the Tories are 8/13 favourites ahead of 7/4 Labour, with Ukip 8/1 and the Lib Dems 25/1.

Will Article50 be triggered by the end of March?.....4/7 Yes, 5/4 No

When will Brexit be official?......1/2 2019; 5/2 2020 or layer; 5/1 2018 or earlier.
