We all love an underdog - so many congratulations to Leicester City for winning the Premier League as a 5,000 to one outsider. What price - I wonder - would the bookies have put on a double nine months ago of Leicester to win the Premiership and Donald Trump to win the Republican Party Presidential nomination!!
We live in a 'topsy turvey' world indeed at the moment and I can't remember when either the sporting world or the political world has had this much uncertainty or entertainment value. In fact on current form of upsets I am starting to think that just maybe we Outers will win the day come 23rd of June - a thought which is reinforced by voters shyness in revealing to Pollsters voting intentions which they think are perhaps a shade politically incorrect. So the winning candidate in the first round of the Austrian Presidential elections was a right winger who got 36% of the vote, some 8 percentage points higher than the polls had predicted. I must stop now and ring my bookmaker - I want a quote on a double. Britain to vote out and Donald Trump to win the Presidency -after all stranger things have happened!
