Not that slugger would encourage anything as iniquitous as gambling but for anyone looking a slice of the action on the SDLP leadership race www.paddypower.com are currently offering odds. Social Development Minister Margaret Ritchie is priced at 6/4 with the bookies offering much less value on South Belfast MP Alasdair McDonnell placing him as odds on favourite at 1/2.
When the betting opened the odds were shifting around a bit reflecting a close race, but they seemed to have settled at current levels for a while….. Does Paddy know something the rest of us don’t?
Any more bets???
