A poser for PB NightHawks as they “gather” in the cafe
A couple of pieces of news that suggest something might be happening – first in William Hill press release that the firm has slashed its odds against Ed Miliband not leading Labour into the next General Election from 2/1 to 8/11. They now offer evens that he WILL still be leader when the Election takes place.
‘In the space of a few minutes we received a sudden rush of interest in backing Ed Miliband to have stood down as leader before the Election – bookies can’t afford to ignore unusual betting patterns of that nature, so we slashed the odds’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.’The last time a leader was odds against to lead his Party into an Election it was Iain Duncan Smith!’ added Sharpe.
And there was this blog post by Simon Carr of the Indy:-
“..You can hear Labour MPs now talking about a leadership change in more practical ways than hitherto. I wouldnâ€™t be surprised if heâ€™s gone before Easter.”
