Meanwhile, news in the election that really matters

Announcement of the new Archbishop of Canterbury today?

On 6 November 2012, the British bookmaking firm Ladbrokes announced they would no longer be taking bets on the selection of the next Archbishop of Canterbury.  In a twitter comment released at 10:33 in the US and at 15:33 in the UK, @ladpolitics announced “Ladbrokes suspend betting on next Archbishop of Canterbury. Money suggests that @Bishopofdurham has got the job.”

I guess they’re the English equivalent of Nate Silver. More here.
