The Speaker – market movers


Iain Dale today reported that Ladbrokes have opened a book on the new speaker. For those of you thinking of having a punt my advice to you is shop around for the best price. William Hill and many others are offering similar bets.  Mr Dale’s tip of Vince Cable is 10-1 with Ladbrokes but Hills are offering 14-1. Sir George Young, a tip from another paintbrush regular is 8-1 with Ladbrokes but a mere 7-2 with Hills. For what it’s worth I would give serious thought to:

Ann Widdecombe (20-1)

Menzies Campbell (10-1)

The 250-1 on offer about Gordon Brown seems like a pleasant enough way to waste a fiver. Anyone with an encyclopaedic knowledge of random backbenchers may wish to select from one of the many names currently trading at 50-1.
