Bookmakers SLASH odds on second General Election in 2017 as hung parliament looms : Express

BOOKMAKERS Paddy Power has slashed the odds on a second General Election after early results indicate a hung parliament.

As Theresa May looks increasingly likely to lose her parliamentary majority, the bookmaker has shortened its odds on the possibility of another vote in 2017.

Paddy Power is currently giving 5/4 odds on another vote in 2017 – favourite by a considerable margin, with a 2019 vote in second at odds of 5/2.
