Is he right about the SNP’s chances?
Last night I had a slot on the George Galloway show on TalkSport and we had a good conversation about the current political betting markets.
We got on to next month’s Glasgow NE by election when he surprised me by tipping the SNP. Galloway is from Glasgow and was a Labour MP for one of its seats. He must know the workings of the city’s Labour machine inside out so I take his views seriously.
He was pretty confident about his prediction so I’ve decided to have punt.
Ladbrokes currently have Labour at 4/9, with the SNP at 2/1 and John Smeaton at 12/1.
