New coalition supports gambling

Was browsing around the net in a quieter moment and read the story about David Cameron moving home to number 10. I was tickled to read this section in the story: –

“Mr Cameron, who said he had “quite a lot of other meetings and things I’ve got to do at the same time” as moving, was also asked to give two horse racing tips by Today’s sports reporter Garry Richardson.

The PM, who was given about a minute to make his selection from the newspaper racing pages, came up with Daring Dream in the 3.50pm at Ayr for those who were a “fan of the coalition”.

For those who were “slightly more sceptical” about how the coalition would work out he suggested Midnight Fantasy in the 3pm at Wolverhampton.

William Hill later claimed they “had been inundated by punters wanting to back the PM’s tips”.

Spokesman Graham Sharpe said: “We can only hope that the PM is a better politician than tipster or this could cost us hundreds of thousands.”

Audio of the conversation is available on this link.
