|One week to go until the general election and the polls seem to be all over the place. Can we learn anything more about the state of the campaign from the betting markets? We spoke to @LadPolitics to see what was happening online and in Ladbrokes stores, and they told us something interesting.
Back in the EU referendum, the betting odds favoured Remain because more money had been placed on it, even though a greater number of individual bets were on Leave.
In the US Presidential election, Clinton was favourite because more money was put on her, but many more people were betting on Trump.
In this general election more money has been placed on the Conservatives, but a shitload more bets are on Labour.
It can’t happen, can it? Two is a coincidence but three would be a trend, right?
