    Day by day – how punters views changed

I’ve been working with the Guardian this afternoon on help with a graphic on how gamblers have changed their views on Gordon Brown’s leadership chances as the week has progressed. The only problem I’ve had is that they’ve wanted the prices in old fashioned fractional odds – not the decimal-type that we tend to use here.

So if it is used tomorrow it will be a bit different from my chart above – which shows the movements and represents the best betting price that was available at any one time. It illustrates the impact of his speech on Monday, the reported comments of Cherie Blair that day, the reaction to Tony Blair’s speech and yesterday’s moves following John Reid’s address.
