Vince Cable Becomes Favourite For Lib Dem Top Job

William Hill have cut the odds of Vince Cable being the next Liberal Democrats leader after announcing his intention to run. He is 5/4 having been 9/4 at the start of the day. Norman Lamb is 7/4 with Ed Davey 7/2 and it looks like a straight race between the three.


“Vince Cable is the favourite having only just announced his intention to run,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. “He was already towards the top of the betting but now has leapfrogged Norman Lamb to become the most likely candidate.”


Next Lib Dem leader betting: 5/4 Vince Cable; 7/4 Norman Lamb; 5/2 Ed Davey; 20/1 Layla Moran; 25/1 Jamie Stone; 33/1 BAR
