The Labour race – the Monday round-up

The Labour race – the Monday round-up


The numbers attached to each of the contenders are from the main Labour party site which is producing regular updates. I think that they are a little bit behind on TU endorsements.

Ed Miliband 5/2 Paddy Power 3.75 3.8
Ed Balls 14/1 Ladbrokes 15 16

My main betting during the week has been on Ed Miliband following the article here by Henry G Manson. His strong argument was that while David Miliband will do well on the first preference voting count he looks set to be overtaken by EdM when the second/third/fourth preferences are re-allocated.
