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.
