Just when you thought it was safe, another referendum looms on the horizon. Admittedly this one appears a way off, but you get the feeling it’s inevitable.

However, Boris Johnson and his government voiced their disapproval so this won’t be an easy ride. Online sportsbook sites in the UK like Bet365 have the odds on IndyRef2, as they’re now calling it, almost too close to call.
The UK’s Batley and Spen by-election is set to take place sometime in the summer or fall this year, as MP Tracy Brabin had to step down.

Anyone who bet on the Labour Party to do better in the local elections was kidding themselves. Even if you didn’t bet on the Conservative Party to win in Hartlepool you knew it wasn’t going to end well.

Hence the odds on Andy Burnham as the next leader of the Labour Party have tumbled at online sportsbook sites in the UK like Bet365 recently.

Anyone who enjoys putting a bet on US politics knows some candidates are gaffe-prone. Some even win and go on to the White House, where their gaffes become legend.

So whilst her California Gubernatorial election odds at online betting sites in the US like Bovada may tempt, avoid them. She may find this race one she can’t win.

Coinciding with its founding centenary Northern Ireland finds one of its major political parties in a state of flux. The Democratic Unionist Party ousted its leader Arlene Foster with Edwin Poots tipped to take over.

The Westminster leader of the DUP, Sir Jeffrey Donaldson has thrown his hat into the ring too. So the party now faces a very clear choice.
We are only a couple of months after the excitements of the presidential elections in the United States. But we are already close to the mayoral elections!

If the electoral commission find evidence of wrongdoing, that might prove a great bet on politics in the UK.
