Election Gamble Sees June Date Price Slashed

POLITICAL BETTING: Coral bookmakers have been knocked over in the rush to back a June General Election date, cutting the price from 20-1 into 10-1.

The Barking based firm have seen thousands of pounds gambled today alone, and added to previous bets taken, it all adds up to a six figure pay out.

“June is now the biggest gamble we have seen on this market, and as a lot of the busy was in and around Central London, it would be no surprise if it’s a summer Election,” said Coral spokesman Gary Burton.

May is still the odd-on favourite, but is now out to 4-9, having been as short as 1-10.

The Tories are the red hot 1-12 favourites to win the most seats, whichever month the election takes place.

** Month of General Election
4-9 May, 2-1 March, 12-1 April, 10 (from 20-1) June, 33-1 February, 100-1 January

** To Win Most Seats at the next General Election
1-12 Conservative, 13-2 Labour, 80-1 Lib Dems
