The above are the prices for the Ladbrokes Obama parliamentary address market. If the president includes any of these exact words or phrases then you win. If not you lose.

I always vow not to take part in this betting but generally end up doing so. My long-shot is the 20/1 against “volcanic ash” simply because Obama’s travel plans are having to take this into consideration.

Amongst the tighter priced possibilities I like democracy, Al Qaida, the Olympics and the Royal Wedding.

What do others think?
