Or will he? Has he actually sold the shares?
Guido too was unlucky. Blogging Blunkett’s downfall instead of betting on it yesterday morning. I called William Hill around 9.30.
Guido : I’d like to put £50 on Blunkett going.
WH : Which race is that?
Guido : Its a political bet not a horse, he’s a government minister.
WH : We don’t do those I’m afraid.
Guido : I have a press release from Graham Sharpe saying you are offering 7/4 on Blunkett going.
WH : I’ll check.
15 minutes pass, Blunkett fails to show up at the select committee.
WH : Hello, sorry for keeping you waiting. We’re not taking any more bets on that.
