This is a cumulative-independent market, which is probably the best way to represent these kinds of markets. This also uses previous general election results as benchmarks, which is also I think one of the better ways to represent these kinds of markets.

@Tripping Per https://commonslibrary.parliament.uk/research-briefings/cbp-10009/ , Labour has won 411 with 1 undecided, which means that while 412 is theoretically possible, "more than 412" is not.

Some sites are adding the speaker seat to the Labour total as well which makes it 412 for Labour with 1 seat to go. I guess that's wrong and speaker's seat shouldn't be counted in the party total?

I mean, there's an argument to be made to count that way, but the 2001 total of 412 given as a comparison is exclusive of the Speaker (see, say, https://researchbriefings.files.parliament.uk/documents/RP01-54/RP01-54.pdf ).

Reporting is that the last seat is between SNP and the Lib Dems, so it shouldn't matter in the end.

bought Ṁ50 More than 412 seats ... NO

It's down to Inverness, Skye and West Ross-shire on one hand and South Basildon and East Thurrock on the other; my crystal ball says the former goes to LD and the latter is apparently just barely Reform.

sold Ṁ9 More than 412 seats ... YES

I agree, latter is close to a toss-up. Basildon and Billericay which is just north of this constituency was won by Tories by just 20 votes over Labour. Reform was close 3rd.

I think IS&WR leans towards SNP. The other seat could go any direction.

Recounts for both seats:

bought Ṁ50 More than 412 seats ... YES

Dumfries & Galloway might decide if Labour end up with 412 or 413.

bought Ṁ50 More than 412 seats ... YES

Neil Duncan-Jordan just won Poole for Labour by 18 votes!

Nice market, and I appreciate the context!

I have been looking at the polling in details and I can say this with some certainty that Labour will win between 400-450 seats and the tories down to about 100

looks like a reasonable chance they win more than that 🙂🤞

Yeah, I think we're looking at >50% for 450+ seats at this point
