All bets are on – bookies get political

THE bookies are already assuming Lucinda Creighton will vote against the abortion legislation tonight.

However, Paddy Power bookmaker is predicting she will have company.

It is offering odds of 16/1 that no one will lose the party whip as all FG TDs will come into line. And, it is offering 4/1 on one or two TDs voting against the party and 3/1 on two to three.

The shortest odds of 13/8 are on for between three and five Fine Gael TDs to vote against the Government and 2/1 that there will be more than five dissenters.
