No Takers on Ex-Greenpeace President’s $100,000 Climate Bet

In the wake of December’s Paris climate agreement, environmental scientist and Greenpeace co-founder and President Dr Patrick Moore offered a stonker of a bet:

With a $100 billion climate fund backing 188 nations’ commitments to cut greenhouse gas levels – including a minimum 40% cut from the EU – this bet seems like a sure investment for eco-warriors with cash to burn.

But more than a month later, nobody has taken up Dr Moore’s offer. Do the climate lobby not have faith in the “world’s greatest diplomatic success” to have a flutter?

Ken Predicts McDonnell Will Be Next Labour Leader

In another bizarre intervention Ken Livingstone has predicted on Putin’s Russia Today that John McDonnell will succeed Jeremy Corbyn should the Labour leader have a stroke or get “pushed under a bus driven by Boris Johnson”Well at least it won’t be a bendy bus…

Coincidently Guido has £1,000 riding on McDonnell being next Labour leader. No rush…

Biden Back in the Race?

Biden his time? How Joe is back in the race for the Democratic nomination (but Paddy Power could get tanked by Trump).

Dan Explains His Streak

Hodges “Streaks” Down Whitehall

The going was wet and it was a dark dawn for the “Dan Hodges Streak Down Whitehall Charity Stakes”, the forfeit for having lost his bet that UKIP would get less than 6% of the vote in the general election:

Ladbrokes were there and took £20 from Guido that he would not complete at 25/1:

There was a bit of a “Stewards Inquiry” given there was no sign of either a Farage mask or promised Hodges’ bare arse…

Despite Hodges refusing to sing “Land of Hope and Glory” at the finish, Guido paid up anyway and it was £20 to Elizabeth’s Legacy of Hope to add to another £100 bet that Hodges lost to Guido – 243 days ago. Hodges promises he is giving that betting loss to the charity as well… 

Sadiq’s Each Way Bet

SADIQ-GAMBLINGSadiq Khan is trying to make an issue of Zac’s stake in bookmakers Fitzdares – as disclosed in his register of interests ever since he became an MP. The claim being that Zac’s interest in gambling makes him unsuitable to be mayor of a city where the number of betting shops on our high streets has become a political issue. Unfortunately anti-gambling Sadiq previously voted to introduce super casinos to the UK’s cities… 

Sadiq is currently 4/5 favourite by a sliver at the bookies over Zac at 11/10. Guido recommends you hold on to your money for now, those odds could change… 

Exit Europe Now Favourite With Bookies

Capture

… By ‘Exit Europe’ Guido is of course referring to the horse running the 17:40 at Kempton Park tonight, which is the favourite at odds of 11/2. Eagle-eyed readers will have spotted his trainer and owner is none other than UKIP treasurer Andrew Reid. Stay tuned for the result…

UPDATE: He’s only gone and won it. One member of the Guy Newsroom is very happy having cleaned up. A good omen for Brexit?

UPDATE II: Here’s the action replay:

To any readers who had a punt on Guido’s tip, drinks on you…

Voting Has Now Closed, Betting Remains Open

corbyn-bets

Guido managed to reverse his bets on Corbyn in time and now stands to profit if #JezWeCan turns into #JezWeDid. Though it might be a little more expensive if Harriet Harman is brought back out of retirement. Andy Fandies have been telling Guido to back him at 2/1, 7/1, 10/1… well he’s now the 15/1 long shot…

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 […]

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 […]
