There’s been a big political betting rush overnight following the opening by William Hill on Britain’s membership of the EU.
Initially one bet had 2/1 that there’d be a referendum before 2020 and the other 10/1 that there’s be a UK exit in the same period.
My Tweet sparked off a lot of interest and I was getting calls and texts from all over. For a time Hills withdrew the market but now it has re-opened with tighter but still, arguably, attractive odds.
With the big EU budget meeting in only a couple of days this looks set to be an even livelier issue.
