What the bookies say…

There are some who say that the bookmakers, rather than the pollsters who make the more accurate predictions. BettingMarket.com has the latest from Betfair.com which currently suggests (at the moment) that the result will be a Fianna Fail/Labour coalition (if tonight’s barney between Rabbitte and Cowan is anything to go by there will have to be a lot of hard swallowing before that happens). And on PaddyPower.com has just moved into the same conclusion. The fastest drop though is the price of the FF/PD/Green combination.
