The Tories take the lead in ICM Euros poll and my 56-1 bet is starting to look good

May 12th, 2014

The LDs slump to fifth place behind the Greens

Just a year ago I placed a bet at 10/1 that the Tories would win most votes in next week’s Euro elections – a position that has found little support on PB or elsewhere.

I’ve stuck with my guns and last week I extended my position even further and got on at a 56/1 on Betfair.

Tonight the Guardian ICM poll on the Euros had the Tories in the lead with LAB dropping an amazing 12% on the April poll. As startling as well are the LD numbers – now in fifth place behind GRN.

I could be in for a very nice payday a week on Sunday.
