A BOOKMAKER is taking bets on who will win each constituency in Hillingdon in the next general election.
Ladbrokes is offering the odds to its punters, bringing political betting to the UK. But will you be swayed into placing a bet?
Hayes and Harlington
MP John McDonnell's long held Labour seat is looking solid if the odds are anything to go by.
The popular anti-Heathrow campaigner is 1/25 on to retain his seat at the next election.
However, the Conservatives are only 8/1 to steal a seat which is the same odds as Jenson Button is to win this years Formula One World Championship.
The Lib Dems however, have an uphill climb the size of Mount Everest if they are to emerge victorious in this constituency accoding to the bookies, who are offering odds of 100/1 on their success.
Ruislip and Northwood
A foregone conclusion according to the bookies, with MP Nick Hurd (Conservative) 1/500 on to retain his seat.
That means for every £500 anybody betting on him places, they will only receive £1 back, making an investment seeming as enticing as buying shares in Woolworths.
For either Labour or the Lib Dems to stage a shock, bookies are offering odds of 33/1, the same as last years 100/1 shock Grand National winner Mon Mome repeating a surprise success this year.
Uxbridge and South Ruislip
MP John Randall (Conservative) should change his middle name to 'untouchable' if the odds are anything to go by, himself a superb 1/500 on to retain his seat.
Labour however are a generous 16/1 shout to spring a surprise, the same odds as Bayern Munich to win this years Champions League.
The Liberal Democrats will again have their work cut out to make an impact according to the bookmakers, who put them at 100/1 to gain a seat in this constituency, the same as outsiders Australia are to win this summer's World Cup.
