A General Election will be held in 2010 in the UK, and the bookmakers and betting exchanges have already done a roaring trade on predicting the outcome.
The incumbent party in power is officially under siege as the Conservative Party holds a commanding lead over Labour. The latest polls show that David Cameron will lead the Tories back into power at the expense of current Prime Minister Gordon Brown's unpopular Labour party. You can also bet on the Liberal Democrats to take over at the massive odds of 250/1 but that would just be throwing money away.
For the next UK Election punters can also bet on total number of seats won for each party, the overall majority of the winning party, whether or not there will be a Hung Parliament, and whether small parties like the Green's or the BNP will win a set.
In fact, many UK bookmakers are offering a large number of markets on what will occur before voting even starts, namely with the live election debate featuring odds on which candidate will perspire first.
UK gamblers will be able to bet on the outcome of every seat, and they can choose whether to take spread bets or the more conservative option of straight odds.
We have previewed some of the most popular upcoming UK Election betting markets, including future leaders of the three main political parties.
