Have we missed out anyone obvious? Feel free to post suggestions here and we’ll add any good ones to the betting.  Latest odds are on our website here

A quick note on the rules for this one; only defectors before the next general election count and we’ll return all stakes if no Tory MP defects to UKIP before then.

Matthew Shaddick has been Head of Poliical Betting at Ladbrokes since 2008. He's a writer and odds-maker with particular expertise in UK and US elections. Also known to dabble in music, literary and other out of the way betting markets. Sometimes issues tips on horse racing and football, which are best ignored.



Whilst I doubt he’ll defect, Roger Gale (North Thanet) has is pro capital punishment, anti gay-marriage, and would probably hold his seat in a by-election. Worth consideration I reckon.
