    Default CBS News calls bookmaker Paddy Power a Brit

    Hilarious, American network CBS news is reporting that UK bookmaker Paddy Power is already paying out on a Barack Obama election victory.

    Hopefully, they are more accurate in other aspects of the election reporting.

    I hear Prime Time are hiring.

    So what? Septics are geographically illiterate. Most have no knowledge of where other US states are let alone other countries.
    If you continue to elect idiots in elections, don't be surprised when the result is an idiotic government.

    Not good for Obama - will discourage his supporters from voting and other Americans will be annoyed at foreign interference in the election.

    They consider ireland 9rep of) to be part of the UK. Get over it please .
    Even with the usual caveats attached to opinion polls, a 65% to 17% majority for Northern Ireland remaining in the UK suggests little room for doubt.

    In business terms it is probably better to be labelled a Brit than a Paddy. Besides I think they are far larger over there now than they are here. No big deal.
