The Telegraph and Argus report contains the following line:
“Pointing out a leading bookmaker had labelled Bradford South as UKIP’s “most winnable” in Yorkshire, Mr Smith added: “It’s a winnable seat – the bookies have very good inside information.”
Errr..no. I’m not sure who this “leading bookmaker” is, but a quick look at Ladbrokes’ odds reveals that Bradford South is behind several other Yorkshire seats as UKIP’s most winnable.
|Wentworth and Dearne||8/1|
|Penistone and Stocksbridge||8/1|
Labour remain 1/50 favourites to win Bradford South. Not based on any magical “inside information” but just a realistic appraisal of the seat combined with the money staked by Ladbrokes’ customers
