Goldsmith Set For Richmond Park Defeat Again

Zac Goldsmith is to stand as the Tory candidate in Richmond Park but if the early betting is to be believed he will once again find himself on the losing side. The Liberal Democrats are 8/15 favourites with William Hill to win the seat with the Conservatives 11/8 second favourites.

“It looks as though Mr Goldsmith looks set to win the silver medal in Richmond Park again,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.

Richmond Park constituency: 8/15 Liberal Democrats; 11/8 Conservatives; 50/1 Labour; 100/1 UKIP; 250/1 Greens
