Mook, I fundamentally disagree with this.Remain = nothing changes and are we happy with the status quo
Leave = Things will change, maybe for good, maybe for bad but at least we will be the masters of our own destiny. There is no way of really knowing until we do it.
Well that just further reinforces my view to leave lolMook, I fundamentally disagree with this.
It's not remain = status quo.
They are heading for the USE, we have made it clear we are out of ever closer union. Remain means definite internal struggles with the EU and probably bail outs we will have to contribute to when italy and greece (again) default.
Best description I heard was on the radio yesterday.
Both choices are incredibly risky and full of doubt. No one can predict the future with absolute confidence. Given the dangers on both sides I would rather we had our own control to deal with whatever lies ahead.
I had £12.35 in my PaddyPower account, so I threw that one at 6's6-1 odds for the leave result, surely it can't be that long? Do you think the odds are the result of 'leave' voters placing a 'disappointment hedge' on with the bookies, and so the odds reflecting this one-way betting stream, or it just really is that clear cut?
Wouldn't put it past either camp to be using wealthy supporters to skew the betting odds. That said, we'll know when we see how close it is and which way it goes.Bookmakers set their odds according to the total amount staked.
So if 1 person stakes £10 on remain and 10 people stake £1 on leave, they will set the odds at evens for each (leaving aside that they always over-round their book).
From what I've read, a lot more money has been staked on remain but a lot more people have bet on leave with smaller amounts.
The odds on WH went out to 7.0, but are now 5.5.
Remain may have got it, but given no exit poll I've no idea how anyone has the faintest idea. Surely the last poll today of 48/52 is still well within the margin of error.Remain seems ahaead
