Referendum Debate reaction from Ladbrokes

| 06.08.2014

The week leading up to the debate saw pretty much non-stop support for YES, backed in from 9/2 into 7/2. I expect that was a combination of post Commonwealth Games optimism and the anticipation of a debate win for Salmond.

So, after a reasonably evenly fought contest, another chance for the YES team to make a significant breakthrough appears to have gone and the clock is ticking down. We immediately pushed YES back out to 4/1 and cut NO from 1/5 to 1/6.
