Royal Baby Betting Markets

Royal Baby Betting Markets!

Mary, Victoria and John have been installed as equal $9.00 favourites with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au to be the name of the Duke and Dutchess of Cambridge’s first child following news this morning that Kate Middleton is pregnant.

Diana and Frances are next in the market at $10, followed by Phillip, Anne, Charles and George at $11.

Brynne ($151) and Fergie ($251) are the outsiders in the market.

In other royal baby markets, speculation is mounting that there may be a multiple birth, with twins priced at $9.00, Triplets $41 and Quadruplets $101.

It appears unlikely the baby will be a ginger ninja ($7.00), with the baby favoured to have brown hair at $2.75.

Prince Harry and Pippa Middleton are both $2.00 favourites to be the Godfather and Godmother.

“Word is that Kate has had bad morning sickness which could suggest more than one baby is on the way. Either way we are tipping they will keep the name traditional, otherwise the Queen might lose it,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Shaun Anderson.

“During the last decade the image of the polar bear has moved in the public imagination from being an icon of strength, independence and survival in one of the most climatically extreme of world environments, to that of fragility, vulnerability and more generally of a global environmental crisis.” More>>

Scoop Review Of Books: The Typewriter Factory

I finished reading Don’t Dream It’s Over not long after it came out last August. I even started writing a review, which took something of an ‘I’m sorry people, but it’s already over’ approach. I’ve been pretty negative about journalism as it’s practiced in the mainstream (or MSM, or corporate media or liberal media or whatever terminology you prefer) for quite some time (see for example Stop the Press), and I believe the current capitalist media model is destructive and can’t be reformed.

Not content with adhering to one particular style, he likes to adopt consciously unfashionable styles of painting, in a manner reminiscent of Roy Lichtenstein. More>>
