Dismay? This May! Punters backing General Election next month

| 02.04.2019

Britain could be heading back to the polls as early as next month if our political punters are anything to go by.  

May 2019 is now 11/4 to contain a General Election following significant support in the betting, with June also fancied to hold a snap election at odds of 5/1.

Much depends on the next few days in Parliament, where another round of indicative voting could take place alongside a fourth meaningful vote on Theresa May’s withdrawal agreement.

If both fail, then Britain could be heading back to the ballot box. Alternatively, our traders go 2/1 about a second EU Referendum and the same price for the UK to revoke Article 50 in 2019.

Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said: “Punters are clearly siding with an election in the next few months rather than a second referendum getting the go ahead.”
