Nate Silver takes Ladbrokes to the cleaners

I was lucky enough to meet Nate Silver today, in our shop in Bury market. He’s filming a Panorama programme about the election, which should be going out in the last week of April.


That’s him with Richard Bacon, who’s doing the presenting. 

For a bit of fun, he had a tenner on the 4.35 at Kempton on a horse called Ninjago at 8/1. It won. He then re-invested his winnings on Wales to beat Israel in the football at 13/5. They won 3-0.

£288 return from his original £10.  Ladbrokes will be glad to see the back of him.
