Australian bookmakers are predicting a Labor landslide in tomorrow's election, and if both the betting market is to be believed, Labor could wind up with up to 80-seats in the House of Representatives. Gerard Daffy from Lasseters Sportsbook is forecasting a bloodbath in tomorrow's federal election with Labor to win at least 20 seats. Daffy has taken bets on every Australian election since 1993 and has accurately predicted the result on as many as one hundred elections from around the country and the world. "I think there'll be a couple of removalist vans parked outside The Lodge come Sunday," Daffy said. "The serious election punters have spoken and they've put their cash on Labor," Lasseters has Labor at the short quote of $1.20 after starting the campaign at $1.45. Conversely, the odds for the Coalition have blown out to $4.60 from $2.75 only six weeks ago.


David Bradbury the Labor candidate for Lindsay has shortened to a quote $1.03 following the Islamic pamphlet scandal. Liberal's Karen Chijoff has drifted out to a price of $9.00.


There were rumours yesterday that Karen Chijoff had resigned from the Liberal Party but it appears she'll be offering herself for election.
