Danny Alexander

Having stood side-by-side with austerity architect George Osborne for five years, betting markets continue to suggest that Danny Alexander is set for the chop in his Highland constituency.

A 1/9 wager for his SNP rival Drew Hendry with Bet365 gives implied odds of 10% that Alexander will survive, while backing the Treasury Secretary at 7/2 with William Hill rates his chances at 22%.

Punters’ predictions reflect a series of dismal polls in Inverness, Nairn, Badenoch and Strathspey. Danny’s office are so desperate that they’ve even resorted to setting their local paper against gold standard UK polling companies:

The Courier knows the constituency intimately and is better placed to assess the political mood than a remote polling company using a flawed methodology.”

Better placed to assess the mood, eh?

according to Donna MacAllister, the political editor for the Inverness Courier, Alexander may no longer be able to rely on the fact that he is “local lad” who “hails from a family of Wick boat builders”.

Bye bye, Beaker!

    He will no doubt have a job lined up in the lair of the vampire squid. He sold his soul and that will be his reward.

    Vote them out wherever you can, as also presiding over the abolition of the state pension, for the many low waged who have no other pension provision.
