Labour cut for General Election

Labour have been cut by Ladbrokes to win the most seats at the next General Election.

Following their win in Oldham & Saddleworth Labour are now 11/8 (from 6/4) to win the most seats at the next election.

The Tories are the 4/7 favourites.

A 2015 Election remains the favourite at 7/4 but a snap visit to the polls THIS year is now just 3/1.

Nick Clegg is 12/1 to be the next Cabinet Minister to leave following the Lib Dems’ poor showing.

Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: “Clegg appears to be the big loser if the punters are any guide. The pressure is on the Deputy PM. A quick return to the polling booths is now a very real possibility.”
