Can we read anything into the betting?
BETTING HAS been suspended on the ‘Next MP to leave Cabinet’ market amid a sustained gamble on Andrew Lansley according to Ladbrokes.
The firm says is has had to temporarily suspend bets on him to leave following an overnight punt despite the PM coming out in support of his Health Minister.
Lansley’s latest odds of being the next MP to leave were 5/6 before suspension with embattled Welsh Secretary of State Cheryl Gillan 4/1 as the furore surrounding HS2 slowly dies down.
Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: “Lansley’s time appears to be running out. Punters are convinced the cabinet will be reformed before the NHS.”
