Bookies Close Betting on Another Defection
William Hill have closed their betting on another Conservative MP defecting to the Labour Party following a flurry of bets for the 5/1 they were offering for a Tory MP to break ranks within a year. "Every bet we accepted was for another Conservative MP to cross the floor and gambles such as these are rarely wrong - we fully expect an announcement in the next few days," said Hill’s spokesman.
