I was having a wander thru the political betting markets and found an interesting bet. At Ladbrokes you can get 6/4 on UKIP gaining an MP at the next election but when you look at which party will gain the most MPs at the next General Election the betting is as follows.
Labour (obviously) 4/9
Liberal Democrats 150/1
So the bookies believe that UKIP have a far superior chance than the Liberal Democrats of getting the most MPs in the next parliament. Obviously it would be a long shot but considering the Liberal Democrats have around 50 odd MPs at the moment and UKIP have none. It says a lot about the state of the two parties.
You can now also not find the bet for a sitting MP defecting to UKIP the book is closed no more bets being taken. Seems to be not if but when someone will jump ship.
