Betfair clients look set to go to the Betting Arbitration Service. The Times’ City Diary reports that whilst Cantor’s Spreadfair stopped taking bets on the Next LibDem leader (Ming is officially leader according to the parliamentary authorities and LibDem HQ in Cowley Street), Betfair has slyly changed the terms of the bet – after the event. They now claim he is not “a full-time leader”. What?
Guido urges Betfair clients who have backed Ming to demand their winnings, or refer the matter to the B.A.S. Betfair obviously have screwed up, don’t let them screw you!
