    Default The Govt falling this year - any prices in the bookies for this?

    A quick call out to P.ie gamblers, I know that Paddy Power have odds on when the next election is going to be called... but do any bookies have odds on when the Govt might actually fall?

    I wouldn't mind a little wager on them not to last the year...

    Thanks.

    I think that the Govt will fall this year but it'll be next year before there's an election so it's the odds on that I'm looking for.

    Ah the old chestnut that 100% of people in the private sector work at 100% capacity 100% of the time!

    most likely day for govt to fall is day of or days after budget

    it would fall in 2010 but election would be in first week in January - hence the long odds on a 2010 election

    That's exactly why I'm not looking for odds as to when the election will take place but when the Govternment will fall. Obviously two completely different things.
