Dating Games For Theresa & Nicola?

THE ODDS that Article50 will be triggered this month have drifted to their longest level of 1/3 with William Hll, while Nicola Sturgeon has talked up the chances of another Scottish Independence Referendum happening in autumn 2018, with Hills offering 10/11 that one will take place before the end of 2020.

Hills were offering odds of 1/6 about the Article50 triggering happening this month, before the recent Lords' vote made that a little more difficult, while Hills offer punters two bets on when the follow-up Indie Ref will happen- either before the end of 2020 or before the end of 2024. 'Nicola Sturgeon and Alex Salmond can only cry Wolf so many times before people will stop listening, so perhaps her latest comments should be taken seriously' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.'But we know Theresa May is desperate to achieve her stated aim of triggering Article50 before April.'
