Will a coalition member join Labour in 2011?
The odds of any MP crossing the floor this year have been slashed by Ladbrokes to 3/1.
Ed Miliband has offered disgruntled Liberal Democrat MPs the chance to defect to labour and it’s 3/1 any current Liberal MP takes him up on the offer.
10/1 is the price about any cabinet member crossing to labour this year with Simon Hughes a 33/1 shot to switch in 2011.
Nick Clegg is now just 10/1 (from 33/1) to join the Tories before the next General Election.
Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: “Miliband’s call could trigger a game of musical chairs in Parliament. Clegg’s defection to the Tories would be a shock but political punters aren’t ruling it out.”
Ladbrokes latest betting:
Any current MP to join another party in 2011 – 3/1
Any current cabinet member to defect to Labour in 2011 – 10/1
Any Lib Dem MP to defect to Labour in 2011 – 3/1
Simon Hughes to defect to Labour in 2011 – 33/1
Nick Clegg to defect to Tories before next General Election – 10/1
Nick Clegg NOT to be Lib Dem leader at 2011 conference – 10/1
