Still no betting syndicate but still betting on odds and sods. This is almost a gift from William Hill.

I was listening to late night radio and one of the top stories was that Vince Cable has made U-turn and is going to vote in favouring of tuition fee rises. Check BBC news

Business Secretary Vince Cable will back a rise in tuition fees in next week’s crucial vote, it has emerged.

He told a newspaper: “Obviously I have a duty as a minister to vote for my own policy – and that is what will happen.”

Mr Cable has previously said all Liberal Democrat MPs would act collectively to abstain in the vote.

William Hill sent me this.

VINCE CABLE is an odds-on chance with William Hill to vote in favour of higher university tuition fees next Thursday.
Hills offer 2/5 that he will vote yes; 7/4 that he will abstain; and 16/1 that he will vote against. ‘Mr Cable is clearly uncomfortable about the situation, but we believe he will opt to vote in favour of what is his own policy’ said Hill’s Graham Sharpe

Yes 2/5
Abstain 7/4
No 16/1

At the time of writing this market is still open. I put £100 for hopefully a free £40 profit. Sign up here if you haven’t got an account. * disclaimer. I get a commission if you sign up via this link. Use code F25 to get a free £25 bet. Don’t blame me if it loses though. Just write to Vince Cable telling him he has lost credibility. You can’t be a government minister and not vote for your own laws!
