A hat tip to Zorro’s friends over at East Devon Watch http://eastdevonwatch.org/ for their vigilance in checking what odds the various bookies are offering on the forthcoming general election battle in East Devon. It’s interesting to note the consistent prices being offered by both William Hill and Ladbrokes on both Claire Wright and Hugo Swire. The prices reinforce the word on the street amongst electors that Hugo's under severe pressure from Claire Wright!This is East Devon Watch's report –
William Hill has opened a book on the East Devon parliamentary battle between Claire Wright (ever-present Independent) http://www.claire-wright.org/ and Hugo Swire (rarely-seen Conservative). Claire Wright opens at 7/1, with Ukip well behind on 16/1, Liberal Democrats 33/1, Labour 100/1. Hugo is 1/9.
Currently Ladbrokes has Claire Wright at 6/1.So, still perceived as a two horse race!

It’s time for change! It’s time for challenge!
