A vote for any other candidate will be a vote for the Tory parachuted candidate.
“Bookies at Ladbrokes have put Claire Wright at 7/4 for the East Devon seat on December 12.
At the time of writing, Conservative candidate Simon Jupp was the favourite at 2/5.
The company tweeted odds for selected Independent candidates nationally, and put Cllr Wright ahead of Dominic Grieve (Beaconsfield, 2/1), David Gauke (NE Herts, 4/1), George Galloway (West Bromwich E, 8/1) and Chris Williamson (Derby North, 20/1).
On December 12, Cllr Wright is contesting the seat vacated by Conservative Sir Hugo Swire.”
