REMEMBER I told you lot about Betfair last week, it’s the global gambling exchange where the website’s users buy bets off each other and create their own odds. It’s a way of cutting out Ladbrokes and William Hill in the search for the highest possible return.
This market fluctuates but latest General Elections prices are below. Remember these odds are set by Betfair users, so its quite possible that a gaggle of Lib Dems have logged on in an attempt to cast Labour’s candidates as no-hopers. There’s not much in the pot to be won, but, look, some nameless internet user is offering 3-1 on Glenda Jackson to win Hampstead and Kilburn. I know a few Labour supporters who think all is not lost and might fancy a treble-your-money punt.
