FORMER MP David Drew is favourite to win the Stroud constituency seat in the 2015 General Election, according to Ladbrokes.

The betting company released odds for the seat on Monday, February 24.

Labour’s David Drew is favourite to win at 4/9 with Tory MP Neil Carmichael in second at 7/4.
UKIP is in third place at 33/1.

The party recently announced Caroline Stephens, a former banker from North Wiltshire, as its prospective parliamentary candidate to contest the Stroud seat.

Stroud is considered a key battleground for the 2015 election.

It features 16th on Labour’s 106 must win seats to secure a majority.

Stroud is also considered part of the Conservative 40-40 campaign strategy, where it will target 40 new seats in marginal constituencies and pour efforts into keeping another 40 where current MPs have slim majorities.

Good. I'm not necessarily pro or con David Drew and I doubt he's has much to do with his being the favourite. It's the incompetence of the incumbent MP which will lead to his downfall and the Tory party will regret sticking with this fool for so long.

Please remember that Stroud does not have to be stuck with any of the LibLabCon "professional" political numpties. There is the logical option to vote for Caroline Stevens, the UKIP candidate. Don't let the Tories split the UKIP vote. Vote UKIP, get UKIP!
