Conflicted Over Corbyn

lay-corbyn

Guido is conflicted. On the one hand, a Labour Party led by Comrade Corbyn would be a source of much merriment and material. On on the other hand, believing that the majority of the Labour rank and file have not gone mad and that peak Corbyn will pass, Guido has been laying him on Betfair. If you really think Corbyn can do it, Guido is happy to take your money…

Cooper Now Ahead of Burnham Again

lab-dex

Yvette seems to have decided to shift her rhetoric leftwards and become the no-change candidate, re-endorsing the 50p tax rate, aspiration-crushing Mansion taxes and even arguing against the £23,000 benefits cap for Londoners – despite there being plenty of jobs available in London. As Burnham spins his love of business and bashes benefits-for-nothing, Yvette is telling Labour activists what they want to hear. Guido frankly thinks her third placed 6/1 long odds don’t make sense…

Just four more nominations will take Yvette Cooper to the final round…

Miliband’s Evasiveness on SNP Getting Cut Through

ONE-DOES-NOT

The polling evidence and anecdotal reports from the doorstep suggesting the need for Miliband to do a deal with the SNP is getting cut through to voters has got Tory morale up. Miliband’s claims that he won’t do a deal are widely disbelieved, because voters can see from the polls that would mean he would not be going to Downing Street. Betting on the Tories being the biggest party gets you a 20% return on your money by Friday down at Ladbrokes…

10 Days Until Dan Hodges Streaks Naked Down Whitehall

Back in 2012 renowned political soothsayer Dan Hodges made this now infamous vow:

We’ll be counting down until the event, presumably taking place anytime from Friday, May 8 onwards.

Guido also has a bet on with Dan that Douglas Carswell will be re-elected. Safe.

If UKIP poll above 6% in ten days’ time, there are going to be a lot of confused tourists in Westminster…

Damian McBride: My 20/1 solution to the three-pipe problem that is the next DPM

800x400_Damian_Mcbride_020415v2[1]

Former political spin-doctor and pub quiz enthusiast Damian McBride takes you through the runners for the post of Deputy Prime Minister with the latest odds from Paddy Power.

If you think the outcome of the election is difficult to call, just take a look at Paddy’s superb new market on the identity of the next Deputy Prime Minister. As Sherlock Holmes said in The Red-Headed League, “it is quite a three pipe problem, and I beg that you won’t speak to me for fifty minutes.” Well, pipe at the ready, let me try and solve the case a bit quicker than that.

Favourite in the betting is ‘no-one’ at 7/4, reflecting the fact that there’s no genuine need – either constitutional or practical – for the PM to appoint a deputy. That said, we’ve had a Deputy PM in place during 27 of the last 36 years, so whether we’ve got a minority government, a majority or a coalition, there’s a decent chance the modern tradition will continue. So my fellow detectives, who are the candidates?

Which MPs Will Lose Their Seats In May?

Given the polls are all over the place and the pundits are running out of ways to say that they have no idea what is actually going to happen, we’re left to follow the money. Bet2015 shows the live betting odds in each seat and which ones are going to change hands, as well as projecting the national picture based on the insight from the turf accountants. Right now it’s showing a dead heat between the Tories and Labour:

You might recognise at least half of those behind the site:


Bookies think Reckless will lose, that the polls are overestimating the SNP and the Liberals won’t be completely screwed. Track it here.

Flood of Pre-Speech Bets on Clegg to Quit

As Clegg decides what he is going to wear for his speech at 1pm, Paddy Power have slashed the odds on him to announce he will quit as LibDem leader before the election:

This comes on the back of an element of stirring last night:

If you reckon he’s got a very big rabbit coming this afternoon you can put your money where your mouth is here
