What Price Nicola To Get Second Indie Ref By End 2020?

A SECOND SCOTTISH INDEPENDENCE Referendum is odds-on to take place before the end of 2020, say bookmakers William Hill, who are also making a 'Yes' to Independence their hot favourite for the outcome of that vote.

William Hill are offering 4/6 (60% chance) that there WILL be another Indie Ref before the end of 2020 – and 2/9 (82% chance) that there will be one before the end of 2024.

And Hills now offer 4/6 that if there is another Referendum before the end of 2024, the outcome will be in favour of Independence.

'A second Indie Ref before the end of 2024, and quite possibly before the end of 2020, now looks inevitable, and we believe it is an odds chance that it will produce a vote in favour of independence' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
