Wry & Dry

Follow the money

The bookies moved markets just a little this week.  

The US Presidential election market remains unchanged, with Ms Clinton favoured to win, comfortably.

The UK Brexit poll has the YES vote firming a reasonable amount.

The Australian federal election sees the Coalition firming a little and Labor easing, a little.

In each case, W&D reminds readers of a couple of truisms:

  -  "A week is a long time in politics", Harold Wilson, former UK Prime Minister.

  -  "Too early to say," Zhou Enlai, former Premier of China (when asked, in 1972, about the significance of the French Revolution).

So, don't put your glasses away, yet.
