Long Wait For Next Labour Govt?

THE LABOUR PARTY is unlikely to win an overall majority at a General Election for at least fourteen more years, believe bookmakers William Hill, who have opened a book on when that will next happen, and offer 7/4 (36% chance) that it won't be until 2031 or later.

Hills also offer 9/4 that it will happen between 2021-25; 11/4 2026-30; 9/2  (18%) 2020 or before.

'We think that there will probably be three or more General Elections before Labour next achieve an overall majority' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.

NEXT GENERAL ELECTION RESULT....4/7 Conservative overall majority; 15/8 Hung Parliament; 7/1 Labour overall majority.

WHEN WILL NEXT GE TAKE PLACE?....2/1 THIS year; 7/1 NEXT year; 8/1 2019; 8/11 2020 or earlier.
