Think the UK is leaving the EU? Wanna bet? Well, from Thursday, you can.
Ladbrokes will start taking bets on the UK leaving the EU, giving Eurosceptics and Europhiles alike the chance to put their money where their mouth is. The company is already taking bets on the date of the referendum.
The current favourite, with odds of 4/6 is no referendum before 2018.
David Cameron’s preferred choice, 2017 gives you odds of 7/4.
But, if you fancy real bang for your buck a 2015 referendum is 25/1.
Open Europe and Ladbrokes will be hosting a launch party for the new market in London this week, if you fancy a flutter.
