They say that bookmakers rarely get it wrong, but I’d love to know the person setting the odds for unpredictable Tower Hamlets election.
Sporting Bet has opened a book here. At 11am this morning, they had Helal Abbas at 2/11 odds-on favourite, with Lutfur Rahman at 8/1, John Griffiths and Neil King at 16/1 and Alan Duffell at 100/1.
In the past hour, money must have flowed to Lutfur. As at 12.20pm, he’s come in to 3/1 and Abbas has drifted to 2/7.
My bet is that will continue to change.
