Quintuple your money on Glenda

NO, no, no: I do not have shares in Ladbrokes, and I repeat the guidance that gambling is bad. I also presume that the information below is distorted by applying national polling to local seats and the bookies having a big ‘Clegg Bounce’ button on their computers to press which this week automatically shortened odds on all Lib Dem candidates wherever they are standing and whoever they are standing against….

That all said: 5/1 is now the price Ladbrokes are quoting for Glenda Jackson to win in Hampstead and Kilburn.What do the bookmakers know? Do they have any science behind their pricelist? Maybe not.

But 5/1. That is a drift.

    The odds of Ed Fordham winning have shortened too. I got a bet on at at 10/11, now he’s at 8/11. So it proved to be good business betting early, and this is the only circumstance where I will say having insider knowledge is fair and legal!

    …and if you are a betting man/woman,
    please place your bets on horses or dogs – not monkeys and donkeys :-)0

    And the odds for Ed Fordham have shortened again to 4/9 on William Hill.
