Online gambling outfit, sportsbet, has overnight slashed its odds for a November poll – from 21-1 to 8-1.
The big drop came this morning after its online link framing odds for various dates for the poll that must be held by late May 2022 mysteriously vanished from its site for some hours overnight.
The Bug understands betting was suspended after a Mr Dave Sharma from Sydney’s bayside suburbs placed a sizable wager on Prime Minister Scott Morrison opting for a snap November 27 election.
A November 27 poll would help explain Mr Morrison’s reluctance to attend the COP26 Glasgow climate-change conference from October 31 to November 12.
Political commentators such as Chris Uhlmann, Phillip Coorey, one, two or all three Peter van Onselens depending on the time of day, everyone at NewsCorp Australia and sadly too many at the ABC have been scratching their heads as to why the Prime Minister would want to miss the opportunity to go to Glasgow and be lauded by other world leaders for his world-beating performance over many years now in combatting dangerous climate change.
