At odds with romance

Those cynics at William Hill are offering punters the chance to bet on Lembit Opik's marriage prospects.

Lembit and Gabi are presumably on their way to their local bookies to put the housekeeping on their nuptual longevity - William Hill are offering 50/1 that the couple make it to their golden wedding anniversary (Lembit would only be 93 then).

Spokesman Rupert Adams said: "We offered 5/1 that Lembit would get married when he first started dating Gabriela and are hoping to win back some of our loses with these bets."

These are the odds on offer:

4/1 Fail to make it to church
6/1 Marriage to last less than 1 year
25/1 Silver 25 years
50/1 Gold 50 years

Long live the age of romance.

What are the odds that they both die in an accident? Just out of curiosity, of course...
