Odds released on Coalition survival

24/12/2010
Bookies are taking advantage of the cracks appearing in the coalition government by opening new betting markets for the new year. William Hill are offering odds of 4/1 that there will be a General Election during 2011, after Cabinet minister Vince Cable was stripped of some of his powers earlier this year. 2012 and 2013 elections are both priced at 6/1, though 2011 is likely to remain the firm favourite due to the latest goings on in parliament.

William Hill spokesperson Graeme Sharpe said: “The coalition relies on cross-party agreement, and the indication that there are significant cracks appearing could jeopardise the long-term survival of the arrangement.”

The odds on Vince Cable leaving the cabinet altogether before the end of 2011, either by quitting or being sacked, have halved, from 4/1 to just 2/1.

The result of the General Election is probably the most exciting market to bet on as it is likely to generate the most interest, with the following odds: 13/8 Hung Parliament; 7/4 Conservative Majority; 15/8 Labour Majority; 80/1 Lib-Dem Majority.
