Online Market on Leicester South is opened – and then closed
After days of waiting William Hill opened their online market on the Leicester South by-election today and then, a short time later they withdrew it.
We are trying to clarify the position but we can only assume that so much money was going on one of the “runners” that the bookmaker needed to withdraw it to reconsider the prices. It will probably appear again tomorrow but with different prices.
Judging by the number of people who have been contacting Politicalbetting.com today, a number of whom have been working in the constituency, our guess is that a lot of punters were trying to put money on the Lib Dems. We’ll know for sure when the new prices appear.
