The opinion polls are starting to show the gap between the Tory Party and the Labour Party is closing, as a result the Bookies have reacted by cutting Labour into around the 9/2 – 4/1 mark, the Tory’s have drifted sightly from 1/12 to the 1/5 – 1/6 mark.
As a result of this, the likelihood of a Hung Parliament has become a more realistic outcome with William Hill now offering 6/4 on this scenario happening. Ladbrokes are even going as far as offering 7/1 on there being more than one General Election in 2010.
In the event of a Hung Parliament, Hill’s go 10/3 on David Cameron to be PM, 4/1 on Gordon Brown remaining resident in No 10, and 50/1 any other.
There would appear to be no bookies now offering odds on the 6th May being the date for the General Election
A further revelation has seen the BBC claim that they rejected a request from Downing St to allow Gordon Brown to appear on Match of the Day 2 (on a Sunday night), claiming it is too close to the General Election.
Useless trivia, former Labour leader Tony Blair once appeared on the BBC’s Football Focus programme.
