Ealing Southall, Labour to come third or worse!

Yes, Mike Smithson, political punter extraordinaire, and author of "The Political Punter" has read the runes and issued this challenge:

What odds will someone offer me on this proposition - Labour not to make the top two
in Ealing Southall. I’m prepared to bet £100

My reasoning being that these defections will cost Labour 1000s of voted.

Who’ll take me on?

As yet there appear to be no takers, i certainly won't. If Mike is prepared to put that kind of money on the line, then the odds of it happening have got to be better that 2-1.

If that were to happen Tom Watson and Keith Vaz would not be allowed near a by-election again and Gordon Brown's honeymoon would be well and truly over.
