Paddy Power has released betting odds on Bristol West for the up-coming General Election which show The Green Party as favourites to win the seat which is currently held by Labour. The Liberal Democrats are in a distant third place. The polling comes after Electoral Calculus earlier seat predictions that saw The Green Party taking the seat with the Liberal Democrats slipping to fourth.
Commenting on the results the Green candidate for Bristol West, Molly Scott Cato MEP, said:
“These results are clear. Green politics has sown the seeds of hope in Bristol and we are now seeing electoral results grow out of this. We already have 11 Green Councillors in the city doing great work. We now have a chance to make history in June by electing the first Green MP for the city.
“Today marks the beginning of the Green Party’s campaign for a bold, positive future for our country – in wholehearted opposition to the extreme Brexit and far-right agenda threatened by another five years Tory government. It is great to see the betting companies reinforce what many here in Bristol already know – that the Greens are best placed to oppose this awful Tory government.
