Hammond Wonderland! Paddy Power opens ‘Budget Bingo’ marketsby Joker 07.03.2017 0 comments
Paddy Power Politics has opened its ‘Budget Bingo’ markets as UK Chancellor of the Exchequer Philip Hammond presents his first ever budget to the House of Commons this Wednesday.
Taking over the fiscal reigns of former Chancellor George Osborne, UK political commentators eagerly await Hammond’s ‘Budget 2017’ presentation, which will reveal PM Theresa May’s strategy in a much-changed political landscape.
Irish bookmaker Paddy Power hopes to spice up tomorrows Budget proceedings by opening a number of special politics markets.
Punters will be able to wager on Hammond taking a leaf out of Prime Minister Theresa May’s book and wearing a tartan suit (25/1), losing the budget box (80/1), and painting it blue (500/1)
Other markets include what phrases he’ll use, with “Brexit” virtually guaranteed at 1/100. “Theresa May holds my hand, too” is slightly less likely at 500/1
Company spokesperson Patrick ‘Paddy’ Power said: “Will Phillip properly Hamm it up with a Theresa May-style tartan suit?
“Either way, it’s pretty much a guarantee that he’ll mention Brexit – and Donald Trump is bound to gate-crash yet another event. Though the concept of a budget might bend his mind.”
