Every penny counts
A quick sideways glance for you that reveals just how close this contest has been and may yet be.
It's rare that you can guarantee a dead cert winner at the bookies but it looks as though anyone betting on the party that'll receive the least number of votes on May 6th can start counting the winnings.
That's because two national betting company have - liked any number of political commentators - failed to agree on which of the three largest parties will poll the least amount of votes.
Paddy Power place them like this:
4-5 LABOUR 11-10 LIBERAL DEMOCRATS 12-1 CONSERVATIVE
While William Hill go for:
8-13 LIBERAL DEMOCRATS 11-8 LABOUR 14-1 CONSERVATIVE
Now I'm no expert on betting and as a non-conformist minister's daughter I would never, ever advocate that you take it up either but I'm told this allows punters to back both Labour and the Liberal Democrats and line their pockets.
No matter which party receives the least amount of votes, you still win.
As I say, a sideways glance - nothing more than a fascinating indication that with just six days until voting day, this General Election has still got all the pundits and the bookies guessing.
