IndieRef2? When & What Outcome?

WITH NICOLA STURGEON threatening to call a second Scottish Independence Referendum, and Theresa May implacably opposed to the idea, William Hill believe that it is as likely to happen as not by the end of 2020, but very likely indeed to happen before the end of 2024.

And when it does happen, Hills make it an odds-on shot that the outcome will be a vote in favour of independence.

WILLIAM HILL ODDS.....INDIE REF2 BEFORE END OF 2020?....10/11 Yes (52% chance); 10/11 No

                                           INDIE REF2 BEFORE END OF  2024?.....1/3 Yes (75% chance); 9/4 No

OUTCOME OF INDIE REF2 BEFORE END OF 2024...8/11 (57% chance) VOTE IN FAVOUR OF INDEPENDENCE; EVENS AGAINST.

'Our odds suggest that the next Indie Ref will probably take place between 2021 and 2024 and that it will result in a vote in favour of independence' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.

Meanwhile, Theresa May is set to trigger Article50 before the end of March, but William Hill have cut their odds that she will NOT do so from 9/2 to 7/2, and lengthened the odds that it WILL happen from 1/8 to 1/6.
