Gordon Brown is toast
I don't get into political betting much but after my last success with the Gordon Brown's speech and doing an MBA at the moment, perhaps I should. With the work and pensions secretary James Purnell resigning tonight, a leadership challenge is imminent. When that was announced as breaking news on the 10pm BBC News, the market for Brown Exit in June collapsed - shown in the circled area below.
If you have any idea who the new Home or Foreign Secretary might be (politicalbetting is reporting that Milliband may resign tomorrow as well), then the Betfair markets are wide open at the moment.
