Tory/Labour coalition backed in from 50/1 to 25/1

The idea of a Grand Coalition has been getting a bit of traction recently and the odds on that being the outcome of the next election have been cut from 50/1 to 25/1 in the last week.

Outside of some sort of national emergency, this seems a pretty implausible idea for many, many reasons.

Just for starters, imagine the massive boost any such arrangement would give to UKIP. Also, I dread to think what would happen to Labour in the 2016 Holyrood elections – in fact this would probably hasten the end of the UK rather than achieving what Lord Baker et al are hoping might result. So, I wouldn’t touch 25/1 myself, although plenty of punters seem happy to invest.
