Will levels be much higher than last time?
My view on turnout has, for some time, been that it’s going to see quite an uplift from the 61% of 2005.
At the last two elections the outcome was always a foregone conclusion and there was never any sense that change might come about.
A fortnight tomorrow things will be different. A change is a real possibility and even at this late stage it’s not possible to predict the outcome. Voters, I believe are getting more engaged.
My main bet is that it’s going to be in excess of 70% and I’m covered down to 65%. The Ladbrokes price against 70% or more has tightened to 5/2.
