Conservatives 7/2 to win overall majority in 2015

The Conservative party are now 7/2 to win an overall majority at the general election according to Ladbrokes.

David Cameron's speech laid down the gauntlet to his rivals for 2015 however the betting markets suggest him and his party will have their work cut out with Labour just 7/4 for a majority, although it's favoured at 11/10 that no party manages to form one.

When it comes to who will be Prime Minister in time for next year's Queen's Speech, Ed Miliband leads the way at 4/5 with David Cameron 5/4 to remain at Number 10.

Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: "Cameron stepped his election campaign up a gear but the betting suggests Labour are still in pole position should either party secure a majority. As a result, Miliband remains odds-on to receive the keys to Number 10."
