Reshuffling the Leadership?

Following the recent Cabinet reshuffle, bookies Paddy Power are speculating on how many more reshuffles we will see before the next General Election.

It is even money that we will see one more before we take to the polls, 9/4 we see two more and just 11/2 a possible three more could be down the line.

The odds on another shuffle not occurring are 10/3.

Meanwhile, on the back of the reshuffle, Paddy Power have made a few minor changes in their ‘Next Leader of Fianna Fail’ market.

Both Mary Hanafin and Mary Coughlan have drifted in the betting from 14/1 to 18/1 and 18/1 to 33/1, while new Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Innovation Batt O’Keeffe has moved up the ranks to 22/1.

Micheal Martin remains the 7/4 favourite to takeover as Fianna Fail leader after Brian Cowen.

Tony Killeen, Pat Carey and Sean Connick are new entries into the bookmakers market although still very much rank outsiders at 66/1, 80/1 and 100/1 respectively.
