Will Brown’s Chancellorship survive 2005?

    Hills offer 7/4 on Gordon going in 2005

With both Tony Blair and Gordon Brown trying to calm the atmosphere following the weekend’s revelations about what Brown said about trusting his boss William Hill have opened a market on the Chancellor staying in his post for the whole of 2005.

The price is 7/4 that Gordon Brown will cease to be Chancellor by January 1, 2006 – and 2/5 that he is still in the post on that date. Given the range of possible options that could lead to Brown not being there in a year’s time we think that this is quite good value. It covers:-

  • Blair sacking or moving Brown
  • Brown becoming Prime Minister
  • And the admittedly very outside chance of Labour losing the election
  • This is another one of those William Hill markets which are announced and are not available immediatly online. Let’s hope they do make it available because it is a well devised bet.
