Amusing and interesting tale in this morning's Sunday Times about a Labour Minister who has apparently placed a bet against Gordon Brown winning an overall majority. He placed the bet when Brown was having his initial bounce after gaining office and got decent odds it seems.
How very loyal it is when one of your own team bets against you. The question is, who is it? How much did they bet, and what is 'substantial' win they are set to gain if the bet pays off? I ask these questions because my mind is thinking it is someone who is in a marginals, thinks they are going to lose, and might be setting themselves up with a little bit of cash for the time they're looking for work.
Any ideas on who the mysterious Minister might be cam be posted in the comments. It's time for wild specualtion dear readers.
