Paddy Powers have suspended betting on the new PD leader. Seems Michael McDowell is the clear favourite at 1/33 before betting was suspended at 4pm. Yesterday he started at 2/1.
"Needless to say the genius in Paddy Power who came up with those odds is now making the tea." said Ken Robertson of Paddy Power.I think that it's daft to suspend betting. Anything can happen in politics and Michael McDowells leadership ambitions have been so well publicised that some journalist is bound to be waiting in the long grass with a story that can derail his leadership campaign.
