Odds slashed on London Mayoral candidate Siobhan Benita

News Shopper: London Mayoral candidate Siobhan Benita London Mayoral candidate Siobhan Benita

A BOOKMAKER was yesterday forced to slash the odds on independent candidate Siobhan Benita winning the London Mayoral election following a feeding frenzy from eager punters.

Paddy Power has cut the former civil servant’s price from 500/1 to 66/1 with one bold bettor standing to win £10,000 on a £20 stake.

Current mayor Boris Johnson remains the strong favourite at 2/7, his shortest price to date, to win his second term.

Labour’s Ken Livingstone is considered his strongest rival with odds of 5/2.

Meanwhile, Brian Paddick who’s representing the Liberal Democrats has fallen behind Siobhan Benita in the betting and is now available at 100/1.

Paddy Power said: “We’re usually happy to let punters nibble away at low key candidates’ long odds but after being stung for £25,000 by George Galloway’s win in Bradford West we are being a little bit more wary this time.”

London Mayoral election odds

2/7 Boris Johnson (Conservative)
5/2 Ken Livingstone (Labour)
66/1 Siobhan Benita (Independent)
100/1 Brian Paddick (Liberal Democrat)
250/1 Lawrence Webb (UKIP)
300/1 Jenny Jones (Green)
500/1 Carlos Cortiglia (BNP)

" Cortiglia posted a large volume of messages to “Adult” groups on what was known originally as Usenet and what was eventually taken over by Google Groups. Among the groups frequented by Cortiglia were several involving Swinging. A few postings were made in his own name; most were made using some of his old email addresses. If you cross match the various postings it becomes clear that they are all made by the same person.

As ever, it’s sex. Carlos who uses the nickname “Kiska” was not just an alleged gun for hire, he was a stud for hire - advertising his wares and his body on the internet for anyone interested."
