General Election Latest Betting: Odds-on that country goes to the polls in December

The Brexit debate goes on...

Latest Parliamentary moves have made a December election a better than 50/50 chance on the Exchange...

"It's now 1.910/11 on the Betfair Exchange that there will be a General Election in December after parliament voted against Boris Johnson's proposed timetable for passing the Withdrawal Agreement Bill. Prior to that move by the house a 2020 election was odds-on."

Following yet another stalemate in the Commons last night, it now looks like we will be headed to the polls before anything happens Brexit-wise.

It's now 1.910/11 on the Betfair Exchange that there will be a General Election in December after parliament voted against Boris Johnson's proposed timetable for passing the Withdrawal Agreement Bill. Prior to that move by the house a 2020 election was odds-on.

If the country does vote again then it could be good news for Boris Johnson, with a Tory overall majority trading at 2.1411/10 with Labour out to 20.019/1 - almost the biggest odds we have seen for them in the last two years. No overall majority, however, does remain the slight favourite at 2.0421/20.

It looks nigh-on impossible that the Brexit deadline of October 31 will be met - those odds moving from around 3.02/1 yesterday to 21.020/1 today - while a No Deal Brexit this year is now out to odds of 21.020/1.

At this stage it looks like an Election is coming to town in time for Christmas, which means it could be a New Year's Brexit celebration for leavers if the Tories can keep their projected majority intact.
