The debate: Now the betting begins

The 5/6 on Cameron being “the winner” looks good

Quick off the mark Irish bookmakers PaddyPower has just opened a market on who in an independent poll will be judged the “winner” of the first TV debate of the general election campaign.

I assume that all bets are void if the debate does not take place and you’ll get your stake back. I can see potential problems in settling the market if, for instance, separate pollsters rate it differently.

This to me looks like a no-brainer. In polling after debates those asked tend to say the person they would like to win the election is the winner – and assuming that the Tories are still up there then the 5/6 on Dave looks great.

I cannot find the market on the PaddyPower website but I am assured that it will be up very soon.
