Political Betting (image source: bbc)

The Boggart Blog bookie does not much care for political betting, there are too few serious contenders and it is too easy for the kind of operators who buy money betting on very long odds on. Spread betting is a different proposition but he has not ventured into that yet.

Still, things may change, the imminent election has so many uncertainties it throws up opportunities for the eneterprising bookmaker. One area our market making friend may get involved in is laying odds on surprise results in Labour held northern working class constituenceies. Why, you might well ask, when those seats are so safe?

Well here’s a news snippet that is in the public domain, the bookie knows more of course but bookies rely on inside information so he’s not sharing anything beyond this snippet.

… comments came as rumours spread that UKIP possess secret polling showing them ahead of Labour in a number of seats in Northern England.

While the party is not revealing the seats in question, a UKIP insider told Breitbart London that Labour have “taken either eye off the ball” in a number of areas that were previously considered safe.

Healthy Active Girl Branded Obese by the Thought Police

The parents of a healthy and active seven-year-old girl have been left angered after health chiefs warned the child, who excels at gymnastics, was borderline obese. Libbie Boardman, was weighed and measured as part of a pilot scheme in Bolton, Greater Manchester. The schoolgirl, who is 4ft 2in tall and weighs 5st 5lb, was described as being at the top end of the overweight category bordering on clinically obese by statistics obsessed penpushers working for the NHS in Bolton.

Libbie has a body mass index (BMI) centile of 97. Between 91 and 97 is overweight, and 98 and above is clinically obese. She had her height and weight measured by NHS staff to calculate her BMI as part of a scheme to crackdown on childhood obesity by inventing excuses to take normal kids into care. There they will soon become withdrawn, undernourished waifs looking at the world through haunted eyes as they are subjected to regular abuse by specialist paedophiles who are recruited by councils to staff care homes.
